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 29, 2015 - Noon update: Wind-blown smoke from the Carpenter Road fire.

Looks like the Carpenter Road fire is becoming active.  Expect gusty winds and windblown smoke and dust until the wind dies down this evening, then likely some residual and potential heavy smoke in the area through morning.

Blowing smoke on hwy 395 looking South toward the Carpenter Road fire as today's winds kick up. Activity on the fire will likely increase today, and smoke from that activity may result in heavy smoke in the Chewelah/Colville area tonight.
Smoke could be heavy in locations NE of the Carpenter Road fire today.
