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).

When will this smoke go away? Not yet!
For communities like Yakima, Ellensburg, and Tri-Cities, the smoke from Oregon will quickly be replaced with smoke from our own state so you may not even notice a difference over the next couple days.
