Washington Smoke Map

*The map above is not able to display all state air quality monitors. Click here to see all monitors in Washington: WA Ecology Air Monitors

Note: Some users might notice intermittent discrepancies in colors shown on the map of air quality monitors above, and those reported on the Department of Ecology's official page. This is because Ecology believes their method of calculating the air quality category (i.e. “Good”, “Moderate”, Unhealthy” etc) is more protective of public health in Washington. If in doubt as to which better represents public health risk, use the more stringent of the two (i.e. the map showing worse air quality).

7/27/2014 Air Quality Report

Smoke Synopsis:
High pressure builds throughout the weekend and will linger around through early next week. Drying and warming trend will continue as temperatures rise the upper 90’s today and should reach 100 Monday, expect light and variable winds with upslope/downslope diurnal pattern dominating.  Look for the fires to become more active. Smoke will be visible coming from within the fire perimeters as interior areas continue to burn and burnout operations begin.  Look for smoke to settle into low-lying/valley areas early and lifting out as daytime temperatures increase.
