Friday, July 21 2017: #DetwilerFire Smoke in California/Nevada

Current conditions and GOES 16 image from 1 pm PDT.  Fire activity on the Detwiler Fire has decreased today, and air quality is improving in the farther flung locations as a result. 
NOAA's GOES-16 satellite has not been declared operational and its data are preliminary and undergoing testing.

Poorer dispersion however will continue to create unhealthy or worse air quality near the fire, and in the foothills to the south of the fire as light NW winds manifest.
If fire activity remains at this lower level we can expect this more localized pattern of impacts to continue for the next couple days.
