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).

7/17/2014 Smoke Photo from today looking over the town of Carlton, WA

Looks like air quality is pretty bad in the area around Carlton and the Methow Valley.  Photo from this site:  http://www.fsvisimages.com/fstemplate.aspx?site=pasa1
The monitors in the valley (Winthrop and Twisp) don't reflect high values so perhaps the plume is elevated and not impacting the communities too severely.  Looks pretty bad though!

This is what the view should see (except for the snow):
