7/9/2015 Widespread haze and smoke continues from BC wildfires
Smoke from the British Columbia wildfires continues to leak down into Washington causing widespread haze and moderate to unhealthy-for-sensitive-groups air quality conditions across most of the state. We have some wildfires in Washington also but they're not putting out nearly enough smoke to cause all this impairment. In fact it looks like the one fire we have with a somewhat significant plume - the Newby Lake fire located right along the Canadian border in the middle of the state - was sending smoke north into Canada at the time of this satellite photo.
