THROUGH 0000Z January 5, 2006
Numerous fires were burning in south central Florida with areas of smoke
over Palm Beach and Highlands counties moving towards the east and south.
Blazes in Imperial County produced smoke plumes that were moving slowly
towards the south.
- 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.
