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).

7/16/2014 Nice, clear satellite image of fires and smoke today

Satellite images are not always this clear and can often be obscured by clouds but the image from today clearly shows smoke from the 3 major fires of concern in the state at this time.  For orientation, Lake Chelan in the big lake running from the NW to SE.


The entire image (big file) can be viewed here:  http://ge.ssec.wisc.edu/modis-today/index.php?satellite=t1&product=true_color&date=2014_07_16_197&overlay_sector=false&overlay_state=true&overlay_coastline=true&sector=USA1&resolution=250m

Or a smaller version:  http://ge.ssec.wisc.edu/modis-today/index.php?satellite=t1&product=true_color&date=2014_07_16_197&overlay_sector=false&overlay_state=true&overlay_coastline=true&sector=USA1&resolution=1000m

Or if that's still too big:  http://ge.ssec.wisc.edu/modis-today/index.php?satellite=t1&product=true_color&date=2014_07_16_197&overlay_sector=false&overlay_state=true&overlay_coastline=true&sector=USA1&resolution=2000m

  1. The "Unknown" fire in the photo is the Kelly Mountain Fire.

  2. Thank you for posting the fire name. So it's being managed as part of the same complex as Chiwaukum Creek.
