DESCRIPTIVE TEXT NARRATIVE FOR SMOKE/DUST OBSERVED IN SATELLITE
IMAGERY THROUGH 0245Z, May 27, 2018.

SMOKE:
Wyoming/Montana/Nebraska/North and South Dakota...
Remnant thin density smoke from yesterday's big flare up of a fire in
Piute County of south central Utah was visible spreading to the north and
northeast across Wyoming into southeastern Montana and across portions
of the Dakotas and Nebraska.

Southeastern Canada/Maine...
A swath of thin density smoke could be seen between breaks in the clouds
and cloud free areas extending from the southern portion of Hudson Bay
and northern Ontario across the southern half of Quebec, New Brunswick,
and Nova Scotia. The smoke also appeared to graze the northern half of
Maine though cloudiness farther to the south did interfere with smoke
detection. This smoke was leftover from wildfires burning over the past
few days over portions of Central, South Central, and Western Canada.

Western and Central Canada/North Central US...
Thick smoke was noted during the afternoon spreading to the east from
fires in northeastern British Columbia and northeastern Alberta in western
Canada. In addition, a much larger batch of mainly thin density smoke
was seen stretching from the southern part of the Northwest Territories
to northern Manitoba. Thin density smoke also affected southern Alberta,
much of Saskatchewan, the southern half of Manitoba, and southwestern
Ontario and across the US border from far northern Montana to Minnesota,
Wisconsin, and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Thick clouds over
northeastern Manitoba and northwestern Ontario to southeastern Ontario
limited smoke detection in satellite imagery. These large areas of thin
density smoke were attributed to a number of recent wildfires burning
over portions of Central, South Central, and Western Canada.

Mexico/Central America...
A large mass of thin to moderate density smoke associated with ongoing
seasonal burning over portions of Mexico was seen stretching from just
south of the southern New Mexico/southwestern Texas-Mexico border
southward over much of western and southern Mexico and offshore to
the south of Mexico over the Pacific. Patches of mainly thin density
smoke were also noted farther to the east over southeastern Mexico
and Guatemala.

DUST:
Southwestern US...
A swath of mainly thin density blowing dust from a number of source
regions extended from far southern California (near the Salton Sea)
across southwestern and  central Arizona. Additional blowing dust of thin
density was visible over northeastern Nevada and into southeastern Utah.

THIS TEXT PRODUCT IS PRIMARILY INTENDED TO DESCRIBE SIGNIFICANT AREAS
OF SMOKE ASSOCIATED WITH ACTIVE FIRES AND SMOKE WHICH HAS BECOME
DETACHED FROM THE FIRES AND DRIFTED SOME DISTANCE AWAY FROM THE SOURCE
FIRE. TYPICALLY OVER THE COURSE OF ONE OR MORE DAYS. AREAS OF BLOWING DUST
ARE ALSO DESCRIBED. USERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO VIEW A GRAPHIC DEPICTION OF
