Fires in the Plain States and the Southeast

Overall, today was a great day in Air Quality news with minimal AOD reported throughout the nation. We did observe a large amount of fires in the Plain States and Southeast regions of the States. However, very low and minimal amounts of PM were produced from these fires. Smoke was seen in South Florida over Lake Okeechobee as seen in the HMS image below (left). AOD trajectories show low concentrations of aerosols from the Southern Plain States moving Northeast towards the Mid-Atlantic region of the nation (VIIRS CONUS, right).
