DESCRIPTIVE TEXT NARRATIVE FOR SMOKE/DUST OBSERVED IN SATELLITE IMAGERY
THROUGH 1500Z July 19, 2006.
Montana/Idaho/Wyoming/Northern Plains: An east-west oriented axis of smoke leftover from fires in east-central Montana is drifting northward toward the Canadian border. A very small plume emminates from the persistent fire in the neck of Idaho. Some smokiness can be seen mixed with the clouds over the Dakotas probably from intense fires still burning in Wyoming. Central and Eastern U.S.: Other than large regions of haze and smog over eastern Virginia and North Carolina... over much of the south-central Plains into Dixie...and over the mid-Ohio Valley and the Mid-West, there doesn't appear to be any significant smoke plumes.
