...THICKEST WILDFIRE SMOKE OF THE SEASON SO FAR WILL ARRIVE
TONIGHT AND LINGER INTO FRIDAY...

This afternoon and evening through midnight...Expect hazy
conditions for mainly areas along and north of Interstate 80. Some
smoke will start to mix to the surface for areas near Ord toward
midnight.

Overnight tonight from midnight to 7 am...Thicker ground smoke
will spread south to areas along and north of Highway 6 in south
central Nebraska. Visibility of 3 to 5 miles could be common, with
some locations possibly dipping to near 1 mile for visibility.
Folks may begin to smell smoke. Some haze may make it to areas
farther south, but will be less noticeable.

For Friday and Friday evening...Smoke and areas of haze are
expected for much of south central Nebraska, with some smokey haze
possible for folks in north central Kansas, although not as thick
as on the Nebraska side. Visibility of 3 to 5 miles may still be
common on Friday, especially for locations along and north of
Interstate 80.

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.
