Wildfire smoke forecast through 2 September

The weekend windstorm, dubbed by some as the worst summer windstorm in state history, has helped dramatically clean out the air statewide. Here's the progression of air quality conditions since Friday:

Friday 28 August

Saturday 29 August

Sunday 30 August

With several weather systems expected to pass through the state this week, air quality is expected to remain mostly Good during the daytime, with nights degrading to Moderate or USG in places like the Lewis-Clark valley. Parts of Yakima county might see a little smoke from the Cougar Creek fire, but Goldendale is likely to remain upwind of this fire.

Western Washington is expected to remain Good through the week.
