Smoky haze from California fires is expected to drift over Minnesota this week, 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS meteorologist Jonathan Yuhas says.

Yuhas tells anyone who experiences breathing problems to prepare for possible decreased air quality during the second half of the week, likely Wednesday through Friday.

The smoke is expected to be “well above the surface over Minnesota,” Yuhas says.

This may also lead to red sunrises and sunsets as the smoky air passes through.
