Poor air quality today and T-storms possibly some severe this evening

It is possible parts of the Twin Cities west of Minneapolis will not see any T-Storm activity this afternoon and evening.

Smoke from Canada wildfires will again produce poor air quality in the Twin Cities and surrounding areas. The worst of the poor air quality is in eastern Minnesota along the Minnesota / Wisconsin border. Air quality will slowly improve overnight in Minnesota and Westerly Winds will bring back much improved air Thursday and into Friday as Westerly Winds push the smoke out of the state of Minnesota.

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in place for west-central Wisconsin until 2 AM. Any strong to severe storms will be located in west central and central Wisconsin tonight. Quarter-sized hail and damaging wind are the main threats.
