THROUGH 1515Z May 22, 2006.
Upper and Middle Mississippi Valley/Upper Great Lakes/Ohio Valley/Ontario: A large area of light to moderate smoke visible in GOES-10 imagery is moving south off the ridge across southern Ontario into eastern Minnesota and Iowa. The smoke spreads into Wisconsin, Michigan and southward into Illinois and western Indiana. The smoke is also mixed in with haze. The smoke source is most likely from the numerous fires that were burning across the northern Plains, Saskatchewan and Manitoba last week. Kibler
