    Anyone else noticing this?
    I'm in Wexford and from early morning and including now there's this haze covering everywhere.
    It's very like a smoke haze.

    Is this a smoke haze and has anyone any idea where it's coming from?

    Tia. Floki.

    The wind is from the southwest.
    So if it is smoke. It is Irish originated.

    Not irish originated but a bit further afield it seems.

    I asked did anyone else see this today in farming forum and reports are back from clare and Tipperary of the same.

    It seems it came from wildfires in the U.S and Canada.

    Had noticed a strange haze lately, that must have been it!

    Never would have thought it.

    All day today since early morning and the sun and blue sky was obscured by it when the clouds did clear.

    So that was it. It looked like fog, or rain in the distance.
