OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Our latest cold front has moved through bringing a shift in the winds... the N wind will pull more smoke in from fires burning in Canada through the night. Air quality will be ‘Unhealthy’ N of the Metro and in the ‘Sensitive Groups’ category for the Metro and S. We may see the Unhealthy designation spread as the N wind continues Friday.


This front has also sparked a line of showers and storms which have generally stayed S of the Metro... these clear out tonight making way for sunshine, but smoky skies, Friday. Highs will stay cool in the mid 60s.
