Wildfires and weather

I'm not trying to create a climate change debate here but you can start one if you want. I have a question. Since this is a mildly intellectual section of the forum I figured I'd ask since google's answers sucked. All the google answers were about climate change blah blah

Does smoke from monstrous wildfires have an effect on immediate weather? (immediate weather as in a day after/a few days/a week)

I feel like it HAS to. I have no idea though, I pretty much suck at science outside of space-shit.

I'm sure the question might be dumb to someone but I literally have no idea what the answer is haha.

I'm not positive, but I do know heat rises and just that alone can probably cause weather events to take place assuming the right conditions were met.

i think i foudn somthing that basically says only in the general vacinity of the fire and only minimally.

"The heat added to the atmosphere by forest fires dissipates quickly and has a primarily local effect on air temperature. Similarly, the waste heat given off by all of the world’s power plants, automobiles, and other equipment has only a small effect on global temperature."

i also have heard the theory of super volcanos being the cause of the mongols moving into eurrope do to massive climate change caused by the eurption. all over the place. (lots and lots of smoke)

Natural forest fires are good for the earth. They help rejuvenate the soil and gets rid of the 'junk' that prevents things from growing. They also provide great beds for morels, over time(or so I hear.)

Volcanoes most certainly affect weather on a global level.

I'd imagine fires do, on a smaller scale.
