Happy Halloween!

Fires in the Pacific Northwest and the Southeast region of the nation continue as PM maintains low concentrations in their respective regions as seen in the AirNow image below (top left). A majority of fires were relatively small and produced very little amounts of smoke, however, fires in Florida produced thin density smoke plumes that are traveling west throughout Florida (HMS, top right). Cloud coverage over British Columbia, Idaho and Montana blocked PM observations where smoke should be present. Fires in Northern California and Western Oregon produced thin to moderately dense smoke plumes traveling southwest into the Pacific Ocean. VIIRS Conus trajectory (bottom) shows low to moderately dense PM traveling Northeast towards the Great Lakes region.
