Smoke Outlook For Today

Smoke continues across large portions of the U.S. and southern Canada today. Above is view of Catalinas - there is a bit more smoke here than there was yesterday. At bottom is view of Denver smoke at mid-afternoon yesterday.

Below is an experimental smoke forecast (I think from NCAR RAP) valid this afternoon at 3:00 pm MST. We are just on the eastern edge of the California smoke plume.

Plot below shows the large number of active wildfires currently burning in the western U.S. - many of the fires from near Fresno to near Portland have burned well over 100,000 acres.
