Another smoky day in paradise...

This is unreal. You can walk outdoors in North Alabama this morning and see a blue haze and smell wood burning. This is second hand smoke from South Georgia; over 300 miles southeast of here! It is rather amazing, even to a weather geek like me, how air can be transported over such a great distance and remain "in tact". We have an amazingly fluid atmosphere and numerical computer models will never completely replace the human side or "art" to forecasting.

That's strong South Easterly flow!!! It is truly amazing that the smoke isn't disbursed more before it gets up there. We actually had blue skies yesterday. You must have gotten all our smoke... sorry.

Thanks for the backlink.
