Autumnal equinox

Haze from wild fires filters the sun as it rises from due east over Central Kitsap and Dyes Inlet Tuesday morning. Wildfires burning in the Cascades west of Wenatchee filled the atmosphere with haze and low-level easterly winds pushed the smoke over the Cascades through Snoqualmie Pass. The National Weather Service expected smoke to reach down into the Western Washington foothills by Tuesday afternoon. - Greg Skinner
