FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): That burning odor you’ve been smelling outside lately? That might be California.

ABC 21 Meteorologist Matt Leach says smoke from the wildfires in California got into the southerly jet stream, bringing trace amounts of smoke particles to northern Indiana and northwest Ohio.

There isn’t enough smoke in the air to impact air quality, however. That same jet stream has helped bring about much of the cold weather we’ve seen lately, including another expected round of snow tonight.
