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).

Where was the smoke headed early this afternoon?


Early this afternoon winds shifted and are now from the northeast helping move smoke away from the Columbia River Basin but into other communities downwind and southwest of the fires.  This weather pattern is expected to change to southeast winds by tonight and through Sunday.
