...LOOK FOR AREAS OF SMOKE BEHIND COLD FRONT TONIGHT...

SATELLITE IMAGERY...WEATHER OBSERVATIONS AND SPOTTER REPORTS ACROSS
MINNESOTA AND NORTHWEST WISCONSIN INDICATE THERE IS AN AREA OF
SMOKE COLLECTING IN THE WAKE OF AN APPROACHING COLD FRONT. THAT
FRONT WILL TRACK ACROSS SOUTHERN WISCONSIN THIS EVENING...REACHING
MADISON BY AROUND 9 PM AND MILWAUKEE CLOSER TO MIDNIGHT.

ONCE THE FRONT PASSES BY VISIBILITIES MAY DROP TO 1 TO 2 MILES
AND YOU MAY EVEN SMELL THE ODOR OF SMOKE. THIS SMOKE CONTINUES TO
BE CAUSED BY CANADIAN WILDFIRES AND ITS HEADED SOUTH DUE TO THE
NORTHERLY WINDS BEHIND THE FRONT.

WE/RE NOT ENTIRELY SURE HOW LONG THE SMOKE WILL LINGER...BUT
THOSE WITH A RESPIRATORY CONDITION THAT MAY BE AGGRAVATED BY THE SMOKE
SHOULD BE PREPARED TO SEEK AN INDOOR LOCATION. THE SMOKE SHOULD
CLEAR OUT BY MORNING.
