...FUNNEL CLOUDS POSSIBLE ACROSS CENTRAL ILLINOIS THIS AFTERNOON...
Atmospheric conditions exist across the area today that favor the
phenomenon called cold air funnel clouds. Cold air funnels are not
normally associated with thunderstorms. They form out of the bottom
of clouds, spin, and dip down to within several hundred feet off the
ground.
The cold air funnels may last for several minutes, occur a number of
times during the afternoon, and remain in the same general area. They
normally dissipate completely toward sunset.
In rare instances, these funnels may briefly touch down. Stay alert,
and be prepared to move to a safe shelter, if a funnel cloud
approaches the ground.

...Air Quality Alert in effect from 10 PM Tonight through
Noon Sunday...
The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency has issued an Air Quality
Alert for fine particle pollution for southeastern Minnesota.
Canadian wildfire smoke originating from British Columbia, Alberta,
and western Ontario will continue to affect Minnesota Friday
afternoon and evening as it moves from north to south across the
state.
Air pollution monitors show a rapid rise in fine particles
with values approaching an Air Quality Index (AQI) value of 101
(Orange)in northern Minnesota. This plume of smoke over northern
Minnesota is expected to move south during the day. Waves of smoke
will move over the state with air quality beginning to be impacted in
southeast Minnesota on Saturday.
Periods of smoke are expected to persist in this area through
Sunday morning. During this time, fine particle pollution is
expected to remain at, or above, a level that is considered
unhealthy for sensitive groups. By Sunday afternoon winds will
switch to the south improving air quality conditions.
An Air Quality Alert is issued when the AQI is expected to reach or
exceed 101, a level considered unhealthy for sensitive groups.
Sensitive groups, such as people with lung disease (including
asthma), heart disease, children and older adults, and people who are
active outdoors should limit prolonged exertion.
