Air Quality, Smoke Patterns, Hurricanes, etc.

Still confused about the Air Quality Index (AQI) discussed in the news so much? Hugh Johnson, retired National Weather Service meteorologist, explains the AQI and the meaning of its different levels. Hear about the forces behind the wind patterns that brought Canadian smoke south instead of out to sea, and how those same patterns relate to likely rain for the rest of the week (6/13-17 or so). Hugh also notes the seasonal expectations for monsoons in Africa and hurricanes in the south. Produced by Brea Barthel for Hudson Mohawk Magazine.
