The early-morning weather people I heard both said there was ground fog murkiness, so I expected to see it when I left the house before 7.
They also said that in the general area of the city the smoke from the Fourth fireworks was adding to the obscurity. I find that interesting. These health-pandemic types keep saying we should go outside because the Covid particles disperse more. Now the weather specialists are saying that particles don’t disperse (essentially). I’m guessing there are more factors involved…like 5/6 feet off the ground has rather different patterns than 200 feet (plus) above the surface.
Certainly, whatever the air conditions, it took longer than usual to clear.
