MINNESOTA, USA — An Air Quality Alert for ozone pollution and wildfire smoke remains in effect into this evening for portions of the region. Rain and a passing cold front are expected to help alleviate these conditions over the next 24 hours.
Skies will clear out this evening with the risk of isolated showers moving southwest throughout the evening hours.
Cooler air will gradually drift west on Wednesday, but there will still be heat lingering in far western Minnesota. This is where the cold front is expected to stall and dissolve, which also means rain will be focused along the Minnesota/Dakota state line on Wednesday.
Thursday will be beautiful with comfortable weather across the entire region.
Another cold front will drop south across Minnesota and Wisconsin late Friday, bringing a line of showers and a few storms with it. The Twin Cities could see showers late in the evening lingering into Saturday morning, followed by another stretch of great weather.
