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).

7/6/15 Calm with Smoky Haze

Hot, sunny conditions to continue through today. Northwest timber fires and several fast moving brush fires are producing smoke, creating a generalized haze in Central Washington.  See satellite image below.

Tonight NW wind should push more smoke into Central WA.  Local and newly arrived smoke will settle in most valley locations bringing compromised air quality.

Tuesday through Friday, we may have poorer air quality than we have seen so far this season  . . . expect a range from moderate to unhealthy for sensitive groups.

Stronger winds Friday afternoon should clear the air.
