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).

7/10/2015 Westside clearing and one very cool satellite photo
And it's not over Washington but the National Weather Service office in Glasgow Mt. posted a very interesting satellite photo this morning of smoke swirls over Canada, Montana, and North Dakota. The image is of combined smoke from the BC fires and other fires in Saskatchewan.
Here's a link to their Facebook page for more info.: https://www.facebook.com/NWSGlasgow
