Metro Vancouver, Fraser Valley to see another warm, hazy day

Thick smoke from wildfires burning in British Columbia darkened the sky over Vancouver on Tuesday and prompted an air quality advisory. Footage by one photographer shows the sun blocked out by the smoke on Tuesday morning.


Wednesday is going to be another hot, smoky day in Metro Vancouver.

However, Global News meteorologist Mark Madryga says that should turn around within the next few days.

“It looks like the smoke is going to stick around through the day today, meaning pretty gray skies, maybe some thinning later on in the day. Tomorrow a bit thinner, but still patchy smoke.  And then we get ready for the big changes later Thursday night, Friday, and into Saturday.  Several showers will cross the area and it will be cooler, with Saturday’s high just 19 [degrees].  But we will rebound, it looks like, later Sunday, Monday and Tuesday into next week, with more sun coming back.”
