The overall air quality of the Nation was good today. There were a few sporadic small areas of moderate, code yellow, air quality in California, The Central Plains, and the Northeast, but those can be accredited to local pollution for the most part. In California, small patches of ozone have started to show up again which also affect the poor air quality in the region (AirNow image, left). Easter Texas, Southern Louisiana, and Southern Mississippi show a few fires producing small plumes of light density smoke. These plumes seem to be traveling south and south east (HMS image, right).
