Short summary
Through analyzing a smoke aerosol event over the Midwestern USA, the potential impacts of aerosol particles on model/weather-station-forecasted surface temperatures are studied, and for the first time, smoke-aerosol-induced surface cooling is investigated as a function of observed aerosol properties and multiple operational models over a large network of ground stations. The potential issues of incorporating aerosol models into weather models for forecasting surface temperatures are explored.
