Conflicting messages about the haze seen over Albuquerque today »

The City of Albuquerque issued an air-quality alert Friday morning blaming hazy skies on smoke from a prescribed burn in the Gila – but officials with the Gila National Forest said they had no prescribed burns.  The city then said the haze could be due to a wildfire burning in Arizona.

But the National Weather Service says, no, the haze is not smoke but rather humidity – making a rare appearance in New Mexico.
