KANSAS CITY, Mo. — For the second straight night, smoke from wildfires in the western U.S. could give Kansas Citians an extra filter for Monday night’s sunsets.
Those are not clouds over eastern KS. If someone takes a pic of the sunset right now, it will be orange. Thick smoke is spreading over eastern Kansas! pic.twitter.com/7Zq6FPqnzi— Gary Lezak (@glezak) August 1, 2022
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration tweeted early Monday a graphic showed smoke from wildfires in California and the Pacific Northwest driving over the Rocky Mountains and into the plains states.
KSHB 41 Weather meteorologist Jeff Penner says the smoke could time well with Monday’s sunset around 8:30 p.m., giving it an orange glow.
