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).

6/30/15 Air Quality Update: Wenatchee Area



Smoke and Forecast: 
The Sleepy Hollow Fire has very little smoke production at this point.
Three weather words for today: HOT, DRY, & WINDY.  NW winds will increase this afternoon and cool temperatures a bit.  Wednesday, the hot and dry pattern continues through at least Saturday, and likely longer.
Other fire starts in mountainous areas have started to pop up.  With highs near 100F today and then topping out each day above 90F, wildfire smoke should not be an issue for the next few days.

Quick Info
Smoke impacts from wildfires can happen quickly.  Stay informed with some of these links and sites.
 
Precautions
Many state, federal, and county lands have campfire and firework restrictions.  Contact the specific campground, land management agency, or county for more information.
