Wind brings smoke from fires up north over Grand Forks

If you thought the sky looked a little hazy than normal this week, you are not imagining it.

Smoke from wildfires in northern Canada came through the Grand Forks region Thursday.

The National Weather Service says the impact has not caused any real problems. The only impact is the filtered sun, which may have kept things cooler than it may have otherwise been. 

Tom Grafenauer with the National Weather Service said, "yep there is a lot of big fires right now to the north and of the states in the Northwest territories in Northern Saskatchewan, and in the past couple of days we have had more of a northernly flow especially below 10 thousand feet to bring all of the smoke from those fires."

Canada's Northwest Territories are undergoing one of it's worst fire season ever.

So this likely will not be the last of the haze in the sky people will see.
