CARIBOU, Maine — The National Weather Service says smoke from wildfires in Canada is moving into Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.
The weather service says northwest winds were bringing smoke from distant fires in Quebec and Ontario into northern New England on Saturday afternoon.
Officials say the most noticeable effect would be the smell of smoke across parts of the region, especially in the mountains, but that the smoky smell might be noticed along the Maine coast and southern New Hampshire as well.
Weather forecasters say the smoke should also result in reduced in visibility in some areas.
