"This will be the 3rd time this year that Canadian Wildfire smoke impacts the Hudson Valley. It won't be as severe as the June 6th and 7th smoke... that turned the skies orange and looked like the apocalypse was upon us. Guidance suggests we won't be nearly that bad on Monday. However, it is likely to be worse than the June 30th smoke, with Unhealthy air expected across the region. The worst conditions are expected to be as you go further north," Hudson Valley Weather stated on Facebook Monday morning.

Officials believe the smoke should slowly move out of the state on Tuesday. The DEC is watching the forecast to determine if any Air Quality Health Advisories will be needed for Tuesday.
