Residents in the Dubbo district are waking up to a smoke haze on Sunday morning.
An easterly wind change pushed smoke from bushfires in other parts of the state overnight, the NSW Bureau of Meteorology said in a post to Twitter.
An easterly wind change pushed smoke from the #NSWbushfires across the ranges and western slopes overnight, bringing smoke to places like #Canberra, #Armidale, #Tamworth and #Dubbo. This is clearly visible in this morning's sat pic. A repeat of this is expected again tonight. pic.twitter.com/WxzJECAwY6— Bureau of Meteorology, New South Wales (@BOM_NSW) December 7, 2019
