Moderate AQI in the Appalachians is pushed out to sea

A broad front extending from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico moved eastward today, carrying with it the aerosol load that gave rise to a broad band of Moderate Air Quality. Smoke continues to be generated in the upper midwest as spring moves north and farmers continue to clear their fields with stubble burning.

The USDA Large Incident Map shows the clusters of fires in the midwest and southeast which are largely agricultural in origin. There is only one wild fire in Arizona which is listed in the IMT2 category.
