An air jet stream has brought recent smoke to the Council Bluffs-Omaha region from the wildfires along the West Coast.
“The smoke is really high in the atmosphere, so it’s not affecting our air quality too much,” said meteorologist Katie Gross with the National Weather Service. “The smoke will stay for a few days but it won’t have much of an impact.”
Today, highs will climb into the mid 80s by this afternoon, according to the National Weather Service in Valley, Nebraska. A southwest wind at 8 to 13 mph may cool the area.
Tonight will be mostly clear with a low of 52. Winds will continue, but from the north.
