For the third day in a row, lidar/ceilometer observations continue to show smoke which originated from the western U.S. wildfires. The smoke is traveling at a height of around 3-4 km and is not impacting the surface air quality measurements. The NOAA Hazard Mapping System Fire and Smoke Product image above shows a heavy smoke from the western wildfire has continued to travel over the eastern shore and well into the Atlantic Ocean.
