Wildfire smoke is causing the air quality in the Northwoods to drop.

Most of the smoke is moving in from Canadian wildfires.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources said the smoke will be moving from the northeast to southwest during the day.

As of 1:30 p.m. the DNR’s Air Quality Index had Forest County in the Unhealthy Air Quality category. Vilas County dropped to Moderate.
