Anyone in BC, Canada - a question...
Hi there!

On Central Vancouver Island we're having an odd sort of day. VERY hazy and humid, and the sunlight is odd, a sort of brownish-orange that brings out yellows and browns very starkly.

Even my mother-in-law, of all people, commented that the sun looked VERY odd this morning, more dark orange than anything, but VERY bright.

I'm trying to figure out if we're getting a smoke haze from the wildfires in the Interior, as that would make sense (sort of smells smoky too) but I can't find any information or facts to prove or disprove this. Anyone in the lower mainland / Van Isle seeing this effect?

Thanks in advance!

I'm down here near Bellingham, WA, and it is hazy here, and the sunset was very red last night. No doubt it is smoke from the fires.

I guess that must be it. But you'd think the news would have some information about such a heavy haze affecting even lower mainland / Island... ah well.

Not in BC (though I lived in Vic for awhile:), but there are close to 400 fires raging in the interior right now- half as many as in 2009, BUT more hectares- means they're some big ass fires. They could be the culprit?


I always thought the prevailing winds/ airstream traveled eastward... 1dunno1

Well, this is why I was a bit curious... in my eight years here, with worse fires, never seen an effect like this one.

According to weather sats, smoke should be going north-west from the fires

I guess it's just staying more southerly than I've seen before.

hi Hi crazycanuck, we were in Whistler weekend before last, there were big signs everywhere about the fire danger. I guess we picked the right time to go, because there've been a few in the vicinity there. We saw helicoptors dropping water on mountaintops, but I don't know if they were practicing or what. There wasn't a fire where they were dropping the water.

Hmm, I know there have been spot fires near Whistler in the last week and a bit, they were doing drops to stop them from spreading. That could be what you saw. I have a buddy who works fire crews who has told me they do practice drops in / around Whistler, also up around Golden Ears outside of Maple Ridge, but I can neither confirm nor deny 100%.

My assumption also, although if that's the case, it's an odd phenomenon for the area that I'm in. Haven't seen such in eight years, in worse fire years, nor have many who have been here longer than me. Likely just an odd confluence of weather patterns, I guess.

Cool... :)

I was just looking outside, real hazy and muggy out today. Then I noticed the sun was somehow illuminating off the neighbors house. Hmm....how can the sun break through that haze, and how come we can see the sun at all in a haze like this?

Also, last evening at sundown, i was on my way home and ive never seen the sun that huge, that shimmering florescent orange before. Kinda spooked me, knowing about the CME's.

Re: Anyone in BC, Canada - a question...
Wish there was more of a breeze here. I've noticed when it's very very still, clouds of weird odors linger and don't dissipate. The worst is those awful Bounce dryer sheets. A few weeks ago we had some nights where there was zero air movement. It was kind of overwhelming. Also I smelled cooking smells from a Japanese restaurant nearby which I have never smelled before or since. Makes me grateful for the breeze, but there is barely a breeze now.

Oh! I suppose no wind is the best we could hope for with these fires though! So I should not complain about weird laundry smells.

That's what was pointed out to me this AM, same sun effect.

And yes, was just outside, and it's kind of... eerie looking. Everything is cast in orange, so the SHADOW my back deck posts cast look like normal patches in orange dust. Neat effect but, as I said, eerie.

And I did finally find an article saying the smoke was funneling down the Fraser valley, expect this for the next fifteen hours or so.
