Iceland Volcano Quieting Down??

Posted by Dan Satterfield

Keflavik Radar from Iceland Met Office. No plume from the ash currently being detected!

The weather radar at the Keflivik Airport is not seeing a plume from the ash cloud this evening. The last report from the UK Met. Office is a plume height of 16,000 feet. This is much lower than over much of the last 72 hours.

There is also good news on the flight restrictions. The lower levels are looking much better. It looks possible that flights could operate from Paris tomorrow, and even some domestic UK flights might be possible.
