Convective dense smoke from the Cave Creek Complex fires is in a line
65 mi wide extending E to near Show Low, AZ.

Convective dense smoke from the Buzzard fire is in a fan shape around
40 mi wide and extends E to the western tip of Lake Powell.

Moderately dense smoke from the Dragon Complex is in a line 10 mi wide
extending NE to the Coconino/Navajo county line E of Kaibito, AZ.

Moderately dense smoke from the Mudersbach WFU is in a line 10 mi wide
extending ENE to Coconino/Navajo county line S of Cow Springs, AZ.

Rest of US Southwest:
Moderately dense smoke from Westside Complex in NV extends between the
Delmar Mtn. Range to C Iron county in UT.  The plume is about 44 mi wide
on average.

Moderate to dense smoke from the N Gila Complex in NM is in a line 25
mi wide extending to the Catron/Socorro county line.

Moderately dense smoke from a new fire on Camp Pendleton in San Diego
county, CA is 4 mi wide and extends NE to near Temecula, CA.

The above dense smoke is embedded within a broad area of thin smoke
that covers the following areas: E Lincoln County NV, S one-third of UT,
NE quarter of AZ, NW quarter of NM, and far SW corner of CO.
N Canada:
A broad area of moderately dense smoke covers most of the Northwest
Territories South of Great Bear Lake into extreme NE Alberta and extreme
NW Saskatchewan and extreme SE Nunavut Territory.

Most of Alaska's fires are currently obscured by cloudy
conditions. However... a 10 mile wide line of moderately dense smoke
from an unnamed ongoing fire near Traverse Peak extends SE to the town
of Koyukuk along the Yukon River.



Unless otherwise indicated:
  • Areas of smoke are analyzed using GOES-EAST and GOES-WEST Visible satellite imagery.
  • Only a general description of areas of smoke or significant smoke plumes will be analyzed.
  • A quantitative assessment of the density/amount of particulate or the vertical distribution is not included.
  • Widespread cloudiness may prevent the detection of smoke even from significant fires.
