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).

  2. We're thinking of going to Winthrop today for a car show. Any news on air quality or fires near there?

    1. There are a LOT of resources for that area on this very blog. Please take the time to educate yourself of the location of fires nearby, current air quality conditions, the forecast and how to safeguard your health by clicking on the appropriate tabs.

  3. Very helpful. But it would be even better if it presented WAQA instead of AQI.

    1. We use the AQI since this is a multi-agency blog. Only WA Ecology uses the WAQA
