... Special air quality notice for parts of Wisconsin...

The Wisconsin department of natural resources has issued a special air quality
notice for parts of Wisconsin.

brought down to the surface.

A cold front has passed through the state during the late night hours of Monday into
Tuesday morning. Typically... the air behind a cold front is descending through the
atmosphere. This descending motion is what is bringing the wildfire smoke to ground level.

several monitoring sites across northern and west-central Wisconsin. The sensitive groups
category includes children... elderly people... individuals with respiratory and cardiac
problems... or anyone engaged in strenuous outdoor activities
for a prolonged period of time.

for the smoke to move southeastward across the state this morning.
