More Smoke: This Time From Canada

RAPID CITY, S.D. - More smoke is moving into KELOLAND, this time from large wildfires burning in British Columbia.

Thursday, the skies above western South Dakota were thick with haze. The smoke lightened somewhat Friday morning, but South Dakota Fire Meteorologist Darren Clabo says this break won't last. The smoke is coming down in a large formation from Canada.

"It really looked like that smoke was trapped in a layer about five to 15,000 feet above the
ground. There were actually some weather radars in Minnesota that were picking it up and we can kind of judge the height above ground using weather radar because they see that smoke," said Clabo.

The result is a sky in which you really can't see any clouds. It's all just white. Thursday's band of smoke was an offshoot of the main formation that is now moving into South Dakota.

"But, it's a pretty thick band of smoke right now that runs from eastern Montana through North Dakota
and into Minnesota and its all drifting to the southeast so it wouldn't surprise me it we see that haze
picking up throughout the afternoon and evening," said Clabo.

Clabo warns that smoke in the air can aggravate certain health issues.

"Respiratory issues. It can get inside your chest. It can make you cough. It can aggravate asthma. Smoke is a pretty nasty substance when it gets inside your lungs," he said.

And as long as the wildfires continue to burn out west, there's a strong possibility that smoke will drift
this way.
