Smoke will work its way back into our area through today and last into mid week, but it is expected to remain aloft and not impact surface air quality. Temperatures will be in the upper 80s with increasing humidity to start the work week. #mnwx #wiwx pic.twitter.com/shwHpMZAEc— NWS Twin Cities (@NWSTwinCities) August 16, 2021
The National Weather Service stated that the air quality near the ground would not be impacted much by the smoke.
Temperatures are expected to be in the upper 80s this week, with an increase in humidity as the wildfire smoke comes through.
We’ve enjoyed clear blue skies the last few days, but satellite imagery this afternoon shows wildfire smoke is coming back. Included are smoke forecasts for now (blues line up well with where smoke is now) and sunrise/sunset Monday. The smoke aloft is coming back… #mnwx #wiwx pic.twitter.com/oKkhwpG6nO— NWS Twin Cities (@NWSTwinCities) August 15, 2021
