This picture sent to KOB by a viewer shows today's haze as seen from the Raton Pass.

If you’ve looked outside today, you probably noticed the haze. The cause of it remains a mystery.

Dan Ware from the state’s forestry service tells KOB Eyewitness News 4 the haze is from a combination of humidity and dust particles. Ware said he spoke to the National Weather Service and was told the humidity levels in the area jumped 50 percent overnight. The haze was expected to dissipate during the day.

Conversely, the city of Albuquerque issued a health alert this morning. According to the press release sent out, the city issued the alert due to wildfire smoke causing elevated levels of particulate matter. The alert went into effect at 8:30 this morning and is scheduled to last until 2 p.m.

Whatever the reason may be, expect the haze to clear up as the day goes on. Stay with KOB Eyewitness News 4 for more on this story.
