MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – An air quality alert remains in effect for the Twin Cities and a large part of central Minnesota, and was also just extended through Thursday.
The National Weather Service advises sensitive groups, such as young people and those with asthma and other lung issues, to limit their time outdoors.
The air quality alert was first issued Tuesday due to stagnant conditions, caused by light winds, clear skies and strong inversion.
The air quality alert is expected to remain in effect until Thursday evening, when a front is expected to move over Minnesota, bringing clean air from the north.
