DESCRIPTIVE TEXT NARRATIVE FOR SMOKE/DUST OBSERVED IN SATELLITE IMAGERY
THROUGH 0100Z November 03, 2005
Middle Atlantic: Scattered fires have resulted in isolated smoke plumes moving towards the south. Notable among these were fires in Dinwiddie County, Virginia and along the Wake-Chatham county border of North Carolina. Lower Mississippi Valley: Dense coverage of mainly agricultural fires have resulted in localized smoke plumes that were moving towards the north except in southern Louisiana where the smoke was moving towards the south. Pacific Northwest: Good coverage of fires in western Oregon resulted in a broad area of smoke that was moving towards the east. Area of smoke may be larger but detection was hindered by extensive cloud cover. California: A small but concentrated area of fires in the northern Sacramento Valley resulted in a broad area of smoke moving towards the northeast. Southwest: Smoke was moving towards the northeast from several blazes in central Arizona, including one in the Kaibab National Forest.
