7/31/2015 Wolverine Fire from satellite
This is the view of the Wolverine Fire plume today from space. Much of the smoke is staying on Lake Chelan and drifting down lake to Chelan and Manson. Some of the smoke that is going higher in the atmosphere is being transported to the east towards the Methow Valley although monitors in Winthrop and Twisp do not show impaired air, at least not at the moment. Although the series of photos below, taken from the top of the Loup Loup ski area looking SW, show smoke moving through and thickening this afternoon. It's likely that some of this smoke will come down to the surface later this afternoon and evening.
