Residents in Northeast Ohio felt the effects of the California wildfires on Sunday.
If you noticed the sky was hazy over the weekend, that's because smoke from the wildfires created an overcast that could be seen on weather satellites from Lake Erie to Pittsburgh.
Did you notice the sky looking weird today? That is smoke from wild fires creating that hazy look today. You can see it from Lake Erie to Pittsburgh on the satellite. #Cleveland #Weather @WEWS pic.twitter.com/V3dFTMFVuf
