Temperatures today will be cooler than the last few days, reaching the mid 70s to low 80s. However, the north winds that are bringing in the cooler air have also brought some more smoke from Canadian wildfires. The area most impacted from the smoke will be along and east of the Red River, and an air quality alert is in effect for northwestern and west central Minnesota. Temperatures warm back up again for tomorrow, with a few isolated showers and thunderstorms near the Canadian border by afternoon.
The weekend and next week will bring no relief to the dry weather. While Saturday will see breezy, north winds keep highs across the north in the 70s, the remainder of the period will experience dry conditions and highs in the 80s. The north winds will also bring hazy skies (from Canadian wildfires) through Monday.
