THROUGH 0230Z July 27, 2006.

Ohio River Valley and New England:
An area of thin smoke is visible from the Ohio Valley and the Middle
Atlantic States to New England. The residual smoke is from fires in
Central Canada.

N Saskatchewan/ Manitoba/ Ontario:
Thin and moderately dense smoke from fires near Lake Athabasca is drifting
to the southeast over Saskatchewan and S Manitoba.

British Columbia/ NW United States:
Numerous fires in the Northwest are producing thin to very dense smoke
plumes. The smoke is moving to the east and northeast. The most extensive
plume emanating from the Tin Pan and Tripod fires in N Washington reached
into eastern Montana.

NW Canada/ NE Alaska:
Areas of thin smoke from fires along the Mackenzie River in NW Northwest
Territories are moving to the NW over NE Alaska and far N Yukon Territory.



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.
