Here is an excerpt from the HMB Review article – the full article can be found HERE
Coastsiders awoke this morning to deep orange skies and dark that was lasting well into the day. Similar conditions were reported from the North Bay south throughout the region. Thick smoke high in the sky is the culprit.
Jan Null, certified consulting meteorologist for Golden Gate Weather Services, said the orange hue is caused by thick smoke high up that is filtering out most of the sun’s light. It’s similar to what happens during a sunset when the rays have farther to travel through the atmosphere. What’s left over, he said, is just the orange and yellow colors, casting the whole landscape in faded amber light.
“The smoke layers are about as thick as I’ve seen them,” said Null, who lives in Half Moon Bay. “It’s like twilight.”
