It's been a crazy weather year in New York.

The year started out very cold and those below normal temperatures didn't leave the state until very recently. May featured a brief freeze and the start of that month featured continuous rain, which then led into a drought that has lasted six weeks.

Now that the official start of summer is on our doorstep, we have to deal with Canadian wildfire smoke.

Nearly two weeks ago, there was a massive low pressure that started in the northeast. That low pressure blew southerly, which allowed smoke from recent Canadian wildfires to be blown over New York state.

June 5th, 6th and 7th featured surreal images of New York cities, such as Syracuse and New York City. The skies briefly turned orange and there was low visibility, all due to the wildfire smoke.

Round two is on our doorstep.

The National Weather Service says that the wind will blow Canadian wildfire smoke over the state on Sunday and Monday. That smoke will be the most prevalent over Western and Central New York.

In fact, the smoke could very well reach ground-level. That smoke could mix into the surface. The result will be what should be sunny skies, turn hazy.

Once again, the air quality won't be as good as it should be, so keep that in mind when venturing outside over the next 24-36 hours.

This is something that New York residents don't usually have to deal with. Hopefully, this won't be a regular occurrence this summer.
