An air quality alert has been issued for much of southeast Wyoming, including the cities of Cheyenne, Laramie, Wheatland, and Torrington, until 9 p.m. on Monday, June 13.

The area is being flooded with smoke from the southwest.

That's according to a post on the Cheyenne National Weather Service website:

 Due to smoke from Arizona wildfires degrading our air quality across portions of southeast Wyoming, an Air Quality Alert is in effect until 9 PM Monday in collaboration with the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality. Additionally, a Special Weather Statement is in effect for portions of the Nebraska Panhandle for degraded air quality as well. Sensitive groups should avoid excessive physical exertion and minimize time outdoors.
