Manitoba wildfires clouding local skies
If you notice smoke in the air or plan on traveling through Manitoba - and see no local fires- here is the latest on the wildfires in southeastern Manitoba:
Manitoba Conservation and Water Stewardship, the Office of the Fire Commissioner, the Manitoba Emergency Measures Organization and rural municipalities continue to respond to wildfires in southeastern Manitoba.
Shifting winds and low humidity will continue to challenge firefighting efforts. Weather changes could result in moderate to heavy smoke in some areas.
While cooler temperatures are predicted for today, high temperatures are forecast for later in the week with little or no precipitation forecast until Friday.
Anyone living, working, camping or traveling in these areas is advised to use extreme caution and to avoid starting any fires.
