Smoky Hazy Conditions

Miles away in western Canada, wildfires are impacting the weather here in South Dakota.

Smoky skies statewide have reduced visibilities down to a mile or two this morning and possibly into the afternoon. Along with the visibilities, poor air quality is expected to continue today.

Improvement to the smoke conditions at the surface is expected for tomorrow, but "milky" skies will continue as Canadian wildfires persist.

Additional waves of smoke are possible through the weekend as temperatures warm.
