UNDATED (WJON News) -- The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency has issued an air quality alert for all of Minnesota due to wildfire smoke.

The alert is effective from 8:00 a.m. Friday through 3:00 p.m. Saturday.

Smoke from wildfires in Alberta and British Columbia will move south across Minnesota following a cold front on Friday. The sinking air associated with the cold front will push smoke elevated in the atmosphere down to the surface. This will result in poor air quality.
