Latest SO2 data (June 23) shows much higher SO2 mass of ~1.35 Tg in the volcanic cloud. Log scale used here to show large range in SO2 column. Northern arm of plume is being entrained into a cyclone over the Aleutian Is.

If you are flying through the region, perhaps check with airlines for delays but there is a good system of aviation warnings in place. Current estimates of SO2 emissions, while large are not climate significant.... so far.
