DESCRIPTIVE TEXT NARRATIVE FOR SMOKE/DUST OBSERVED IN SATELLITE IMAGERY
THROUGH 1630Z October 22, 2017

SMOKE:
Aside from a modest smoke plume in northern Arizona and a few other
very small smoke plumes across North America, there were no areas of
significant smoke observed in satellite imagery through midday. The
presence of cloud cover over British Columbia is inhibiting the analysis
of smoke, even though fires have been detected throughout the region.

DUST:
Florida/Bahamas/Western North Atlantic Ocean...
Saharan dust was observed extending from Florida eastward into a cyclonic
feature just south of Bermuda. This strip of Saharan Dust appeared
to be moving to the north and east into the Gulf of Mexico and the
southeastern CONUS.

Caribbean Sea/Atlantic Ocean...
Saharan dust was also observed across much of the Caribbean Sea extending
eastward into the Tropical North Atlantic. This feature appeared to be
moving towards the Yucatan Peninsula and the Bay of Campeche.
