Got smoke?

This is today's smoke map. Sorry about that, rest of N America, but we've largest fire in state history burning in WA with others scattered around the NW.



If you want to see what's happening with the fires, here's the link to that map. Red is currently burning, crosshatched yellow the fire's perimeter.

1. So far, just haze and high up

and I think that's what's keeping us cooler now instead of cooking 10 degrees above seasonal norms. Still, I'd rather have the monsoons back and no fires.

2. I wonder how far north and south of the borders that extends

BC has been having fires as well.

I wonder if Mexico is, too.

I hope the forecast for some rain - finally- this weekend holds. We sure need it.

3. seems like the vast majority of fires are in the US, not Canada

I wonder why that is? Does Canada have more sensible laws?

7. Lightning usually does not care what the law is.

8. no, Canada has clearcut as bad as the USA has, even worse in some places. And lightning

hits everywhere. The map I posted was about fires in the USA, lower 48 to be specific.

The first smoke I smelled here in the pacific northwest was from fires in Canada. Here's the BC fires map link. http://apps.gov.bc.ca/pub/dmf-viewer/?siteid=5131184402955244847
