Smoke from Nova Scotia wildfire to cloudy sky over Massachusetts today

The raging wildfire in Nova Scotia is expected to again cloudy the sky over Massachusetts with smoke on Wednesday.

The wildfire may be burning more than 600 miles away, but the smoke has filtered south into Massachusetts. The heaviest smoke and haze will linger north and west of Boston.

The afternoon hours will remain hazy, but conditions won’t be as bad as Tuesday when an air quality alert was issued across the state.

Officials in Nova Scotia have deemed the wildfire “out of control” as it burns across more than 25,000 acres.

Thousands of people have been forced to evacuate the area around Halifax, the capital city of Nova Scotia.
