MINNESOTA (WCCO) – A thick haze of wildfire smoke is moving across the state of Minnesota and can now be seen from space.
The smoke is visible by NOAA satellites which picked up some unique videos Friday morning.
According to WCCO Meteorologist Mike Augustyniak, the haze is traveling inbound through western Minnesota and is expected to stay above our heads.
Hazy in western MN today; hazy everywhere tmro. @MnPCA continues to forecast "good" air quality for the region, as the pollution should stay above our heads.
