Here is the NOAA-19 Polar Orbiter visible image from 122pm ADT Saturday. Lots of interesting stuff on here. Fairbanks is near the northern edge of the smoke from the Volkmar East fire. Cumulus building over the Tanana-Yukon uplands. On the North Slope there is still some snow cover. Of more import though is the vast amount of open water now showing up off the North Slope coast.
