Moderate conditions in the East

Wildfires are still burning in the northwest. There is a smoke advisory in Montana due to the poor air quality. Elevated AOD is visible in Idaho and Montana due to several smoke plumes.

The AOD in the East remains elevated (~0.7). This most likely contributes to the moderate air quality (GASP and EPA AirNow). The PM2.5 AQI is 99 (39.8 ug/m3) in Baltimore MD.
