DESCRIPTIVE TEXT NARRATIVE FOR SMOKE/DUST OBSERVED IN SATELLITE IMAGERY
THROUGH 1930Z May 28, 2017

SMOKE:
Gulf of Mexico into southern Plains and lower Mississippi Valley...
The burning continues in the Yucatan and Central America and this has
generated a large area of light to moderately dense smoke that covers
much of the Gulf and extends into the Bahamas. The smoke is most notable
over the western Gulf where it has been drawn northward.  The full extent
could not be determined due to cloud cover. In areas of the eastern Gulf
and the Bahamas the smoke is mixed with Saharan dust that has crossed
the Atlantic.

Southwest US...
Fires in central and east central Arizona and western New Mexico were
generating plumes of light to moderately dense smoke, with locally dense
areas near the fires. These plumes were generally extending to the west
observed to be burning overnight and emitting smoke plumes that were
traveling west to north west.

Florida...
A large fire south of Lake Okeechobee was observed burning and emitting
smoke plumes this morning. The fire was one that continued from the
previous night. The smoke plume was traveling east out into the Atlantic.

DUST:
Western Atlantic/Caribbean/Cuba/Bahamas/Gulf of Mexico...
A significant surge of Saharan dust has pushed west across the Caribbean
and into the southeast Gulf of Mexico where it appears to have mixed
with smoke from the seasonal burning in Mexico and Central America and
hindered determination of the full extent of the dust.
