(Cleveland)- Northeast Georgians could see a decrease in air quality in the next couple of days as smoke from wildfires in the Pacific Northwest and Canada moves into the state.

Officials say by late Thursday some of the smoke particulates will get carried southward towards north Georgia.

Parts of north Georgia could have a bit of haze from the smoke. This added smoke may also create a more dramatic sunrise or sunset.

In addition, the air quality for the region may drop into the “moderate’ to “unhealthy”  range.   

The smoky condition could persist through Friday.
