Heavy Smoke Rolls Into Winnipeg

I took a look outside earlier this evening and was stunned to see heavy smoke had rolled in. More forest fires.

Forest fires between Red Lake and Bissett have spread smoke southwestward behind a cold front today. A southerly wind will push the smoke out the area by Saturday morning.

Previously hundreds of forest fires in British Columbia has sent smoke as far east as Winnipeg.  Areas further west were affected way worse.
