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).

7/31/2015 Wolverine Fire from satellite

This is the view of the Wolverine Fire plume today from space. Much of the smoke is staying on Lake Chelan and drifting down lake to Chelan and Manson. Some of the smoke that is going higher in the atmosphere is being transported to the east towards the Methow Valley although monitors in Winthrop and Twisp do not show impaired air, at least not at the moment.  Although the series of photos below, taken from the top of the Loup Loup ski area looking SW, show smoke moving through and thickening this afternoon. It's likely that some of this smoke will come down to the surface later this afternoon and evening.
