Not breathing easy just yet: smoke to hang around til the afternoon
The Bureau of Meteorology says the thick smoke blanketing much of the metropolitan area is expected to hang around until at least this afternoon.
The smoke is due to prescribed burns by Parks and Wildlife Service plus private property burn-offs.
Duty Forecaster Angus Moore told Gareth Parker on Mornings says light winds means the smoke is taking a little longer than usual to clear.
