I was shocked to see how much smoke from Canadian and US forest fires has occluded GOES-16's view of much of the Upper Mississippi Valley today, especially Minnesota and central Iowa!



Even my webcams here in Lincoln, NE currently see almost no blue sky, just grayish-white for the most part.



Here is today's Air Quality and Forecast.

Looks bad, I was under impression it was western US burning but that smoke is coming out of Canada US border area. Live here https://www.valentinenebraska.net/wxGOES16-HAniSLoops.php

I am in Fargo today. You can see the smoke in the sky and it is gray. Yesterday was worse
