DESCRIPTIVE TEXT NARRATIVE FOR SMOKE/DUST OBSERVED IN SATELLITE
IMAGERY THROUGH 0230Z, May 26, 2018.

SMOKE:
New Mexico/Southern Colorado/Northwestern Texas...
A large wildfire complex in the Gila Forest of west-central New Mexico
produced a dense smoke plume which fanned out to the east across western
and central New Mexico. A larger surrounding area of thin density smoke
mainly from this fire spread across a good portion of the remainder of
New Mexico as well as southern Colorado and northwestern Texas.

Utah...
A significant fire was detected during the afternoon in Piute County of
south central Utah which produced a large moderately dense to thick smoke
plume which fanned out and moved rapidly to the north and northeast with
the leading edge of the smoke reaching into far southeastern Idaho and
southwestern Wyoming just before sunset.
.
Northeastern US/Mid-Atlantic/North Central US/Much of Canada...
Wildfires scattered across western and central Canada from the southwest
part of the Northwest Territories and British Columbia into Manitoba were
emitting plumes of moderate to thick density during the afternoon with
the newer smoke generally moving to the east. Residual smoke from these
fires and other fires over south central Canada were responsible for a
very large area of varying density remnant smoke. This area covers Canada
from the southern Northwest Territories and eastern British Columbia
through southern Quebec and southeast from there into New England and
the Mid-Atlantic out over the open Atlantic. The southern edge of the
smoke also has shifted southward over northern Montana, North Dakota,
and Minnesota.
.
Mexico/Pacific Ocean...
Seasonal fires were responsible for a large mass of thin to moderately
dense smoke which covered much of southern Mexico and extended offshore
to the south over the Pacific. A more narrow axis of smoke also stretched
farther to the north over western and northwestern Mexico where fire
activity has been more concentrated.

DUST:
Southwestern US...
Rather subtle areas of blowing dust were noted resulting from locally
strong gusty winds over west central and central Nevada, southern
California near and south of the Salton Sea, far southeastern Nevada,
and northwestern Arizona.

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
THESE AND OTHER PLUMES WHICH ARE LESS EXTENSIVE AND STILL ATTACHED TO
