Question: Can smoke from a California wildfire reach the state of Hawaii?
Answer: Yes. Smoke from a California wildfire that blows south near Mexico could reach Hawaii if the weather systems and wind patterns are aligned to that state.
Notes: Smoke from the massive 2018 Woolsey Fire in the Los Angeles County and Ventura County of California made its way to Hawaii.
Although the smoke wasn't visible, occupants reported experiencing burning eyes, a sore throat, sinuses issues and/or a headache after inhaling that smoke.
