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).

Cougar Fire Puts Smoke into Wenatchee and Chelan Areas

A new, large fire near Mount Adams grew rapidly today.  Today's smoke forecast for the Wolverine Fire did not account for the Cougar Fire, which put a large smoke plume over the towns of Wenatchee, Chelan, and the Methow Valley area for several hours today.  The smoke from this fire added to the local smoke impacts of the Wolverine Fire creating unhealthy air quality conditions in some areas.
