One thing I hate about the summer time in the Mid Atlantic is the white grey haze that sits over the Cities. Visibility is poor and everything does not look as pretty because of the pollution. Even though the sky is clear it is not blue, instead a grayish white in color.

What City or State has the worst summertime haze?

The worst I've ever seen is in Denver. A brown cloud hangs over a good portion of the Front Range at certain times of the year. Oddly enough though I could breathe better while in that environment than in Indianapolis. I've heard the worst cloud is over LA though I've never actually seen it.

Atlanta gets very bad in the summer. I hate that milky white look in the sky.

I think it varies from one city to the other depending on recent weather patterns. The worst today isn't the worst tommorrow.

Good point. Try a city in a valley out west when there's a wildfire. Where I'm at right now is pretty bad. The smoke hangs like fog in the air from the NorCal wildfires and it's all trapped in the valley. The sun was a small reddish-orange dot in the sky yesterday.

phoenix isn't that bad in the summer, 'cept for the occasional fire and dust storm .......... winters on the other hand are when we tend to have an inversion and more particulates in the air where you get the "brown cloud"

Atlanta is horrible in the summertime. "Smog" season runs from May 1-September 30 which corresponds pretty much to summertime.

When You take off from Hartsfield-Jackson from June-August you can see and ugly purple layer over Atlanta
