Smoke Continues

The smoke issues in North Dakota continue.  In this blog in the past I had mentioned that the worst days tend to be the ones when our smoke is coming from the fires in Manitoba or Ontario, which was true.  But now, several fires have started in Saskatchewan.  Because that province is a bit farther west, the upper level wind flow is more likely to catch those smoke fetches even more so than the ones in Manitoba and Ontario.  Meaning, between the Canadian fires and the ones in the northern Rocky Mountains, we may be dealing with smoke for a few more weeks, but more than likely the smoke won’t be surface based all the time.
