...Wildfire Smoke from Canada and Western U.S. continues to
Affect Western, North Central and Southwest Nebraska...

Smoke and haze from the wildfires in Canada and the Western
United States continue to impact western, north central and
southwest Nebraska. Areas of thick ground smoke will be possible
with visibility as low as 1 mile at times. Smoke is expected to
linger into early this afternoon.

Those with health conditions sensitive to air quality should
reduce prolonged outdoor activity. Should air conditions worsen,
prolonged or heavy exertion should be avoided by those susceptible
to air quality issues. Others may want to consider the impacts of
the expected poor air quality when planning and participating in
outdoor activities and adjust as necessary.
