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).

Smoke in Chelan County

Smoke from the Buck Creek and Saul Fires is draining into Coles Corner and Plain, causing air that is Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups. A south east wind is keeping this smoke from draining into Wenatchee and Leavenworth but a wind shift is expected this evening, so those areas can expect more smoke this evening onward. 

The Suncrest fire is not producing much smoke at this time.



Air quality is likely to degrade to Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups overnight and hover between Moderate and Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups tomorrow. Expect periods of  Moderate air in Chelan.


A more detailed forecast will be posted tomorrow.
