Light smoke spreads across eastern shore

PM 2.5 levels were low again today, with only some Code Yellow (Moderate) levels being seen in the Plains States and the Pacific Southwest (AirNow, top left). This low amount of PM 2.5 was despite some small amounts of smoke along the eastern seaboard. There was also some smoke in the Plains States, which may have affected PM 2.5 levels in this area (NOAA, top right). This smoke was somewhat captured in NASA's MODIS Terra images, bottom left. Ozone levels were also mostly low, with Code Yellow levels being seen in the Pacific Southwest, the Great Lakes region, and the Southeast.
