Satellite Picture With A Bit Of Everything

A quick break from all of the hurricane news. I ran across an interesting satellite picture from last week. It is visible imagery and shows amazing detail of a number of weather related situations over the Pacific Northwest.

Smoke and haze from northern California wildfires are streaming toward the northern plaines. A little farther north, satellite sensors detected and displayed a stream of sulfur dioxide coming off the Pacific Ocean. It most likely contained volcanic ash from eruptions in the Aleutian Islands of Alaska. Low clouds and fog are evident along the Pacific coast. Last but not least, numerous thunderstorms are shown erupting in the Canadian Rockies and to a lesser extent in the mountains of Montana, Wyoming and Colorado.

It is just a neat picture. I hope you find it interesting.
