Ontario weather forecast predicts ‘sunset of the year’ today and it will be Instagram worthy
Smoke from wildfires in British Columbia continues to pour into Ontario on Thursday, and residents could be in for quite a sight.
According to The Weather Network (TWN), the fumes from hell, which have already traveled thousands of miles, began to appear in the southern part of the province late Wednesday.
The incoming layer of mist could allow residents of several Ontario cities to enjoy “brilliant sunrises and sunsets” as the heart of smoke hovers overhead Thursday evening.
“Smoke particles are comparatively larger than other gas particles. Red light is favorably scattered on smoke particles, creating bright red skies when the sun is lower on the horizon,” TWN reports.
Fortunately, the massive plume is unlikely to drift to the ground, with experts saying that currently there is no “mechanism” to bring it to the surface.
“It won’t even touch the top of the CN Tower, the base of the mist will be about four CN Towers off the ground,” he adds.
Residents will want to make sure they have a good view of today’s sunset, which is likely to be the biggest of the year.
So if you’re still wondering what to do with that DSLR you bought in 2010 to “upgrade” your social media profile, congratulations, your time has come.
In conclusion, if you love sunsets but live in a basement apartment with a criminal lack of natural light, you’ll also want to make sure you find a beach or some green space, all with scenic views, to relax this evening.
