A persistent fire in the Coronado National Forest located in eastern
Cochise County of southeastern Arizona was emitting a moderately dense
area of smoke which had spread eastward into southwestern New Mexico.
A fire burning in the Coconino National Forest close to the border of
Coconino and Gila Counties of central Arizona was producing smoke which
was moving eastward while also fanning out to the north and south.

Several fires across the northeastern portion of Arkansas were responsible
for several smoke plumes which had combined to form a general area of
smoke that had spread northwestward. The smoke did not appear to be
particularly dense and was confined to the northeastern portion of the
state. A more significant fire close to the Searcy-Stone County border
was producing a more dense but narrow plume that was also moving in a
northwestward direction.

The remainder of the Central and Southeastern portions of the nation:
A tremendous number of fires were detected across the area of the country
stretching from the Central Plains to the Middle Atlantic region and
the Southeast. Relatively small localized smoke plumes were visible from
only a small portion of these fires.



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.
