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).

6/29/2015 Wenatchee Air Quality Improves

Wenatchee air quality has improved significantly from the early morning hours and the category is now "Moderate". Technical tidbit: those with particularly sharp eyes may notice that some of the bars on the chart below (especially around 6-8 am) do not match the values on the chart in the previous post. Why not? It's because the most recent values in these charts are estimates of a 24-hour average that tries to predict into the future. So as actual monitoring values come in, the 24-hour averages are updated and become more accurate.
