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).

The picture below is of the BlueSky prediction model for smoke dispersion from the North Star firing operations and flare-ups for 5 P.M. today. Smoke from the North Star is lingering over the burn area and we are monitoring it closely to see where it may travel, either into the town of Republic or to other low lying areas.
 
 
 
This picture is downtown Republic. The smoke from the firing operations is beginning to drift N to NE. This view is looking south.
