"Unprecedented': Minnesota air quality 'very unhealthy' into next weekJul 30, 2021 04:31PM ● By Editor
The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency is calling it an unprecedented long-duration air quality event. The thick plume of Canadian wildfire smoke will persist across Minnesota through this weekend.
MPCA has extended the air quality alert for all of Minnesota through 3 p.m. Tuesday. Air quality will be in the very unhealthy range (purple on the map) for much of Minnesota through the weekend.
Thick smoke is still swishing around in slowly shifting winds across Minnesota.
A northerly wind flow this weekend will reinforce the persistent smoke plume as more smoke from the fires drifts south from Canada.
