MODIS imagery from NASA
The featured image shows a comparison between the morning and afternoon MODIS true color satellite imagery on Wednesday. If you look closely, the afternoon imagery has a light vale overlain. The imagery is showing all of the dust being kicked up by the intense agricultural harvest activity ongoing.

High temperatures today are expected to be in the lower 80s!
