According to WREX you may be able to see smoke from the wildfires blowing as far south as Tennessee. A thick band of smoke extends through much of North Dakota, South Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, eastern Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois and Missouri.

The original article from WREX goes on to say that the smoke can linger through Wednesday, but will then shift to the east.
