Sea Smoke Explained

Halloween might still be over a month away, but yesterday morning the Connecticut River looked down right spooky!

The chilly start to the day combined with the warm water temperatures created thick sea smoke. Check it out!

So what is sea smoke?

It's essentially fog above the water. In order for this thick sea smoke to occur, you need cold air above relatively warm water.

When wind mixes that cool air with the warm air immediately above the water moisture condenses into fog, or sea smoke. Think about the steam above a boiling pot of water or a warm bath. it's the same process!
