Sevier Lake Bed Dust

Great view of the dust plume that is impacting the Salt Lake Valley ibelow.  The source is the Sevier Dry Lake Bed.  The plume has migrated eastward across the Salt Lake Valley in the past hour as the flow has veered just a bit from S to SSWerly.

Expect to see a spike in PM2.5 concentrations once the plume is over the DAQ sensor at Hawthorne Elementary.

At 4:45 PM, the front is over the Great Salt Lake and will be reaching the Salt Lake Valley in the near future.
