An area of low pressure is centred off the northeast coast of Scotland. Numerous smoke plumes from fires on the west coast of the Iberian Peninsula are billowing out over the Atlantic Ocean. In Scandinavia, smoke is also visible over the Gulf of Bothnia and the Baltic Sea. There are also lee waves over the British Isles, cloud streets in Scandinavia and a large algal bloom off the southwest coast of England.
