The National Weather Service Office in Pueblo confirms that Friday's hazy sky is attributed to smoke from the ongoing wildfires in California.
11 News Meteorologist Branden Borremans has confirmed that the smoke is being transported over Colorado by westerly winds in the upper levels of the atmosphere.
This westerly wind flow is likely to persist over the Western United States this weekend, meaning the haze might very well hang around over the next couple of days.
