Numerous fires in the Sacramento valley, mainly in Glenn..northeast
Yolo..Sutter..Colusa and western Yuba counties, are producing narrow
plumes of light to moderately dense smoke that are moving to the north
and reach into northern Butte and southern Tehama counties.

A blaze in southwest Lake county near the border with Mendocino/Sonoma
counties is producing a narrow plume of thin smoke that extends about
70 km east into western Yolo county.

A fire in southern Tuolumne county near the western border of Yosemite
National Park is producing a moderately dense to locally dense smoke
plume that was drifting south at sunset across central Mariposa county.

A fire in eastern Madera county along the Fresno county border and near
Balloon Dome in the Ansel Adams Wilderness was producing a narrow plume
of light to locally moderately dense smoke that extended to the northeast
about 40 km into south central Inyo county.

Three fires in central Arizona are producing narrow plumes of thin density
smoke that are all extending to the southwest. One fire in central Yavapai

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.
