CO- Smoke in Northern Colorado


#1

There was quite a bit of drift smoke visibe North of Ft Collins today (I thought there was a new start west of here). After searching around I determined it is the WY-MRF-Badger Creek fire. The smoke is visible in the latest radar loop.

It’s smokey in Boulder too. Bit of an orange ting to the sky


#4

Probably a combination of the Badger Creek fire and all the other fires across Colorado… hopefully we get some of the predicted rain out of the tropical moisture moving in…and cooler temps!


#5

Smoky again today after the new start in Grand Lake and others in CO and UT.

Hopefully this link will work. This is the fire temperature loop from GOES-16 (now GOES-East) of Colorado. 60 images 5 minutes apart.
