California/western Oregon:
The fires located within the national forests of Siskiyou and Trinity
counties are producing moderately dense to dense smoke that extends  north
northwest over the Pacific but also northward along the coast of Oregon.

The large wildfire in Ventura county of southern California continues
to produce a moderately dense plume of smoke that extends 246 km to
the north.  Residual smoke extends farther north where it joins the
smoke from the blazes in Siskiyou and Trinity counties.

Colorado/New Mexico/Texas:
A narrow ribbon of residual smoke from the Ventura county fire extends
from extreme southwest Colorado across New Mexico and into north central
Texas.  A narrow plume of smoke extends 156 km into the Gulf of Mexico
from a fire on the north Texas coast in Jefferson County.

Baja California:
A blaze in northern Baja California spread smoke northeastward for
244 km across southeast California and was approaching the border with
New 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.
