Lauren Stanforth reports in the Times Union that New York's Department of Environmental Conservation is warning that smoke from Canadian wildfires might return to our area on June 28. Winds from a cold front moving into the area June 28 may bring thick surface smoke to the area from the Canadian wildfires. Gov. Kathy Hochul released a statement on June 26 that said, “As we closely monitor the changing forecast, New Yorkers should be prepared for the potential return of smoke from the Canadian wildfires.... I encourage everyone to remain vigilant, especially if you are vulnerable to air pollution, stay up to date on the latest information and take steps to protect yourself.” The weather forecast could change, and winds could shift. The Departments of Environmental Conservation and Health said they will wait until June 27 to issue any air quality health advisories if necessary for June 28.
