Haze from wildfires in California obscured the sun over North Dakota Monday morning. The National Weather Service says more of the same can be expected for the next several days. “At least through Friday, pretty much all the state,” said Rick Krolak, Bismarck NWS meteorologist. “It’s pretty much putting a damper on our weather, taking away a little bit of our sunshine.” The smoky haze from the wildfires is being carried on upper level winds. “It is staying aloft, thankfully,” said Krolak. The NWS is directing anyone with concerns about the Air Quality Index to check the North Dakota Department of Environmental Quality at DEQ.ND.GOV.
