OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Smoke has been heavy in the air this Wednesday and air quality has dropped to the ‘Unhealthy’ zone for all. This is coming in from Canada’s wildfires behind our latest cold front thanks to breezy NW winds.

Other than the smoke, skies are clear. As winds lighten overnight, temperatures fall fast! Overnight lows dip to the mid 40s to low 50s by Thursday morning. It’ll be a chilly start with a warm up to the low 80s for most by the afternoon. Clouds build by the evening and after 7 PM chances for spotty showers and isolated weak thunderstorms will move in from the W. These will be hit or miss and clear early Friday morning.
