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).

7/16/2014 New fires leading to new smoke

Some of the lightning strikes from Sunday and Monday are developing into full blown wildfires and air quality is deteriorating in various places around the state.   Fire managers and air quality experts are working to get a good picture of what all is happening and will continue to provide forecasts and updates on this site to help keep citizens informed of air quality conditions and risks.

The seriousness of the situation is reflected by the Governor's declaration of a State of Emergency in 20 Eastern Washington counties.
