A wildfire burning in the Sequoia National Park (Tulare county)
is producing an area of moderately dense smoke moving south across
southeastern California.
In the Lassen National Park (Tehama county), a fire is emitting an area
of moderately dense smoke moving east SE into Lassen and Plumas counties.

Multiple fires burning across Klamath counties are producing areas of
moderately dense smoke moving east SE.  The two fires in the northern
part of the county are burning in the Winema National Forest.
Another fire in Curry county is emitting moderately dense smoke moving
south SW into the Pacific.  In Josephine county a fire is emitting a
smoke plume moving south SW into northwestern California before reaching
the Pacific Coast.

North Dakota/Saskatchewan/Manitoba/Northern Plains:
Hundreds of most likely agricultural fires are burning across southern
Saskatchewan/Manitoba and North Dakota. There are some fires in the
surrounding states.  The numerous fires are producing an area of thin
smoke across eastern North Dakota and southwest Manitoba and southeast
Saskatchewan.  There are so many fires trying to find the point source
of the smoke is very difficult.

Lower Mississippi Valley/Southern Plains/Southeast:
Numerous fires are burning across the region producing light to moderately
dense plumes/areas of smoke.  The largest areas of smoke are located in
southern Arkansas and northwestern Louisiana.

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.
