THROUGH 2230Z November 14, 2006

A fire just south of US-192 between Deer Park and June Park in W Brevard
county produced a small puff of thin to moderate smoke that moved NE
and was last seen over Merritt Island at sundown.

A moderate sized sand storm is being kicked up across North Central
Texas from the southern Cap Rock area in Dawson, NE Martin, Borden
and Howard counties from strong 20-35kt Wly to WSWly surface winds.
The dust is modertate in density and is moving E to ENE and currently
covers the origin counties as well as: Scurry, Mitchell, Fisher, Nolan,
Taylor, Jones, SE Stonewall, S Knox, Haskell, Shackelford, Callahan,
with the thinnest forward sand/dust over Stephens and Eastland counties.
There are also hints of thin sand/dust starting to be seen in satellite
imagery over Lubbock county with the higher gusts coming around the base
of the developing sfc cyclone.

Elsewhere, smoke and dust were not seen, though there are quite a few
fires burning across OR, WA, and British Columbia.



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.
