Smoke condition and air quality

The current smoke/haze is coming from the well over one hundered wildfires burning in Canada. As the winds shift in the next few days this will start to clear up. There is also an air quality alert issued by NJDEP:

...AIR QUALITY ALERT IN EFFECT UNTIL MIDNIGHT EDT THURSDAY NIGHT... The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection has issued a Code Red Air Quality Action Day for Fine Particulates, until midnight EDT Thursday night. An Air Quality Action day for Particulate Matter has been declared for Wednesday, June 7th and Thursday, June 8th. Sensitive individuals, including those with heart or lung disease, the elderly, and the young should limit strenuous activities and the amount of time active outdoors. Levels of fine particulates will rise into unhealthy for sensitive groups category statewide today and Thursday and likely last into the evening hours both days due to wildfire smoke transport from eastern Canadian wildfires. In Addition, ozone is forecast to reach the moderate category on Wednesday as sunny skies, light winds, and warm temperatures are forecast for the Garden State. An Air Quality Advisory means that air quality within the region may approach or exceed unhealthy standards. For more information on current and forecast concentrations of ground-level ozone and fine particulates, visit or or call the New Jersey Bureau of Air Monitoring at 609-292-0138
