Minnesota's weekend weather: Smoke to the north, puddles to the south


As northern Minnesotans breathed in smoky air Saturday, the result of wildfires in Manitoba and Ontario in Canada, those to the south cleaned up after Friday’s thunderstorms, which brought brief tornado touchdowns and flash floods.

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency announced an air quality alert for most of the upper third of the state on Saturday morning, to run through noon Sunday. Locations shrouded in smoky air included Duluth, Ely, International Falls, the entire Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and the tribal nations of Red Lake, Fond du Lac and Grand Portage.
