Agricultural Fires in Florida

The air quality today was fair with moderate (Code-Yellow) levels sparsely scattered in the Mid-Atlantic, Southeast, and Southwest (top left). In Southern California and Arizona, air quality indices reached higher levels, Code-Orange.
Ozone levels remained fairly low today (top right).
Several light-density smoke plumes were observed over Florida. They are most likely associated with agricultural fires in the Lake Okeechobee region (bottom left). The smoke is being blown northward from their sources. In California, there wasa light-to-moderate density smoke plume due to a single wildfire in Inyo County. The smoke was travelling northeast-eastward.
Blowing dust was observed in western Nevada being transported for greater than 150 miles eastward (bottom right).
