THROUGH 0100Z June 06, 2006.

The large fire in the Yukon Delta National Wildlife Refuge in SW Alaska
continues to produce a plume of very dense smoke moving eastward into
Yukon-Koyukuk.  This very dense smoke is surrounded by an area of thin
to moderate smoke that extends farther into Yukon-Koyukuk and also
into Bethel.

Numerous fires across northern Saskatchewan continue producing plumes
of moderately dense smoke moving toward the east northeast.

An isolated fire in southeast Quebec on the north side of the mouth of
the St Lawrence river is producing a moderately dense smoke plume that
is drifting south and southeast.

An isolated fire fairly near Smooth Rock Falls in Ontario is producing a
small but moderately dense smoke plume that extends toward the  northeast.

Louisiana and Mississippi:
Two fires in southern Louisiana, a fire in southern Mississippi, and
leftover smoke from yesterday are contributing to the smoky hazy mix
that is moving from these states southward over the Gulf of Mexico.

A fire in north central Broward County is producing a moderately dense
smoke plume that extends to the east reaching just beyond the coast over
the Atlantic.

Northern California and Nevada:
A fire in Siskiyou County, CA, another in Lassen County Ca, and one near
the border of Humboldt and Pershing Counties in Nevada are producing
light to moderate smoke plumes that extend toward the northeast.

Numerous fires in western Ialisco are producing moderately dense smoke
in that area.


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.
