Fires west of DC

The heat is building over us and tomorrow may be a record breaker.  But dryness is also increasing and with it the fire danger.  Nothing like the terrible fires in the west, especially Colorado, but a fire in Shenandoah National Park and westerly winds have brought the small of smoke to the DC area.  Look at this image from 400 miles above us today from the NASA AQUA Satellite. .

And a very tight view.  A bit of smoke from a fire on the Massanutten also .  


Be careful with the heat that will be with us and with it, always a fire danger.
