Canadian Wildfires Causing Hazy Skies in MN


(Learfield News Service) Smoke from Canadian wildfires blowing into Minnesota is giving the sky a hazy appearance.

David Brown, with the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency says with the weather pattern that’s set up and northwest winds aloft over Canada we’re seeing all that smoke being carried across the Canadian plains and into the state across the northern border.

He expects that air pollution levels will be somewhat elevated for the next couple days.

Brown says what this means for the public is that most people won’t be impacted, but there may be very small groups of people who are especially sensitive to the effects of air pollution that may be impacted.

It’s likely the haze will stick around Minnesota for the next couple of days.
