Naples Smoke continues East and Perryton Fire produces smokes plumes over lower Plain States

The first image, NOAA HMS, displays smoke plumes over northern Texas and southern Florida and with low level winds in the gulf, the remnant smoke from the Naples Fire spreads northward towards Alabama and Georgia. The Perryton Fire originated in Lipscomb and Ochiltree counties in northern Texas, but the GASP image shows increased AOD southward of the fires, indicating smoke plumes moving south (top right). The AirNow gif (bottom left), shows increased AQI along the Texas/New Mexico border, but this was due to unknown cause of moderate levels of ozone in the region. There were also observed spikes in AQI Wyoming and Michigan but there haven't been any reported active fires in the region.
