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).

North Central Washington Smoke Outlook 20 Sept 2017


  1. Why even now, in November, does your map show so many fires burning when there are no other reports of fires in the areas?

    1. These are most smaller prescribed fires based on satellite hotspot detections. No where as big/ smoky as wildfires but nevertheless source of smoke. I will discuss with our staff the wisdom of turning off the display of fire locations outside of wildfire season.
