all Wisconsin counties.
Smoke from wildfire activity in Canada currently located in
Minnesota will move into Wisconsin overnight Friday into Saturday

half of the state. A secondary smoke plume will then transport
behind a cold front which is expected to move north to south across
the state Saturday afternoon into early Sunday morning. Elevated
fine particulate matter (PM2.5) concentrations are anticipated to
result in air quality index (AQI) values in the UNHEALTHY FOR
SENSITIVE GROUPS level over this period. Sensitive groups include
children, elderly people, individuals with respiratory and cardiac
problems, and anyone engaged in strenuous outdoor activities for a
prolonged period of time.
