THROUGH 0100Z October 11, 2005
California: Fires were active in Plumas, Shasta, Tuolumne, Siskiyou and Tulare counties as well as in the northern Sacramento Valley. Smoke is present with all of these but the most notable plume extended 38 nmi to the southwest of the blaze burning in Shasta County. Dust was noted over portions of Riverdale, San Bernardino and San Diego counties. Idaho: Several fires in northern Idaho along the border with Washington were generating smoke that was moving towards the east. Another blaze was active in Clearwater County. Mid and Lower Mississippi Valley: Cloud cover precluded the detection of smoke plumes that might be associated with numerous ag fires in this region.
