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).

August 26, 2015 -- Elevated smoke production this afternoon from fires to the SW

Flow was more southerly today though and allowed some impressive fire activity on the Cougar Creek fire send another plume toward areas to the north and west of Spokane.

Visible satellite loop from the afternoon. The Cougar Creek plume is just below the center of this view.
