RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — The smoky conditions in the Triangle and Eastern North Carolina from wildfires in Canada will soon be clearing out, according to the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality.

While the Code Orange Alert will remain in place through the end of Thursday, the NCDEQ has announced that Friday will decrease in severity to a Code Yellow for the Triangle.

It will also still be hazy outside central North Carolina Friday and those conditions persist into Saturday before possibly clearing out Sunday.
