Significant amounts of smoke from fires burning to the west of Iowa created for an interesting Labor Day Monday. Between the smoke and some clouds, temperatures were rather pleasant and a nice northerly breeze helped keep things cool as well. The smoke also made for some interesting optics as parts of the day had a very noticeable yellow tint as shown by the featured webcam image from late Monday afternoon. If you could see the sun, it appeared as a plain orange disc. A cold front and upper level system should help to sweep the smoke out of the state for Tuesday.
