Weekdays 5:30am - 10:30am

The sunrise looks a lot different these days. It’s beautiful but frightening. Cecily Tynan explained why: The eerie haze in our skies this week is caused by western wildfires smoke hitching a ride on the jet stream and moving about 20,000 feet above our area. Since the particles are so high, there’s little effect on air quality at ground level.

We collected photos from around globe to see how the haze is effecting our early rising (or up late!) neighbors:
