Weekend Edition: Smoke continues to dominate North America

The US and Canada continue to be covered by smoke. The HMS map shows most of North American impacted by the plumes from the West and the Northwest Territories. In Utah today, code Red or unhealthy conditions were seen overnight (below right).

In the east high AOD's were seen off Nova Scotia from transported smoke. The number of currently active fires in the Pacific Northwest is impressive. 36 fires are named on the National Forest Service fire page.

In Canada, the CALIPSO overpass on July 25 shows high and dense fire plumes.
