LOW PM WITH SCATTERED SMOKE IN SOUTHEAST

The HMS image (top left) shows several low density smoke plumes scattered throughout the southeast United States. These are believed to be from small, localized fires. In addition, several small fires in Arizona are producing thin and medium density smoke, this is slowing moving north with some remnant smoke in that area from yesterday. Since the density of the smoke is relatively low in these areas, it doesn't seem to have a huge effect on particulate concentration. The AirNow image (top right) shows moderate PM AQI levels through most of the country, with a localized area that is "code orange" (unhealthy for sensitive groups). Lastly, surface ozone levels were low as well, with moderate levels at the Texas, New Mexico border (AirNow, bottom).
