‘The whole town is gone.’ Drone video reveals the scale of fire destruction in Paradise
If you step outside Tuesday, it looks like a beautiful, sunny day.
Yet forecasters say some smoke from the deadly California wildfires is blowing through North Texas.
Unlike San Francisco where the smoke has been so bad that Popular Science said it was the equivalent of smoking 10 cigarettes a day, the air quality isn’t being impacted locally.
It’s also nothing like the Saharan dust that blew into Texas last summer and caused several poor air quality days.
And there may be one surprising benefit.
“It could make for a more colorful sunset,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Jason Godwin.
The smoke should be gone by Wednesday, leaving smoke-free skies for Thanksgiving when temperatures are projected to reach 62 degrees on Thursday.
“It will be a great day to get outside and throw the football with your kids,’ Godwin said.
