Wildfire smoke has been slowly moving down from Canada over the course of Saturday to Sunday and it has made the skies a little hazy around the Tri-state area. While the smoke is expected to linger around through Tuesday afternoon, it is not expected to reach the levels where advisories will be issued for poor air quality and the public health at risk.
