Wildfires Out West Affecting NW Ohio

(Toledo, OH) Wondering where that mysterious smoky smell is coming from? 

Wildfires out West are being felt here in the Buckeye state. Ohio meteorologists say the smell of burning wood has already drifted over the state, and skies are hazy from the wildfires. 

There are more than 50 major active wildfires-- most in California, Utah, Montana, and Idaho. But the smoke from those fires is drifting our way, because the jet stream is lined up to carry it directly to the Great Lakes. 

Meteorologists say sunrises and sunsets are a bit brighter and the moon gets a shade of orange-- too early to be a harvest moon. Those "color enhancements" also are effects from the smoke from out West.
