THROUGH 0300Z June 13, 2006.

A fire in southern Inyo County, California is producing a moderate smoke
plume that extends northward reaching just past the Nevada border.

Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas:
Several fires are producing small, mostly thin smoke plumes in Louisiana,
eastern Texas and southern Arkansas.  There is an area of possible smoke
mixed with haze in eastern Arkansas.

Baja California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah:
Several fires in this area are producing smoke.  A fire in extreme
southwestern San Juan County, Utah is producing a large dense smoke
plume that extends northward as far as southern Vintah County and then
turns eastward and extends into Colorado.  A fire in western Navajo
County, Arizona, and several fires in Catron and Grant Counties in
New Mexico are producing moderate plumes that extend northeastward.
A fire in Baja California if producing a dense plume that extends well
into southwestern Arizona.

The wildfire west southwest of Fairbanks is producing moderate smoke
that extends mostly westward.

Earlier today a few fires over northeast Alberta and northwest
Saskatchewan were producing moderate smoke plumes but the area is now
too cloud covered to observe.

An area of light to moderate smoke left over from todays and previous
days fires covers much of the states of Veracruz, Tabasco, and western
Campeche and adjacent parts of the Gulf of Mexico.


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.
