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).

7/30/2015 Wildfire Smoke Forecast, north central WA

Looks like smoke will settle in the Methow Valley tonight, perhaps degrading air quality to the unhealthy range.

Light NW wind Friday AM should clear the air a bit, but the light SW and variable winds may allow smoke to build up again.

Pattern may repeat until a Tuesday evening when the long range forecast predict a cold front out of the NW…more to follow.

 

You can see the plume originating from the top of Lake Chelan. http://sat.wrh.noaa.gov/satellite/showsat.php?wfo=pqr&area=west&type=vis&size=1
