Wildfires in Canada and the western United States may affect the air quality in Nebraska over the next couple of days.  The Department of Environment and Energy monitors the smoke levels and says there are advisories possible for moderate to unhealthy categories today through August 1st.  There are also times when the unhealthy or red category will apply.  People with breathing difficulties or heart issues may want to limit their time outdoors.
