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).

Air Quality Forecast - Chelan Lake & Methow Valley Fires - Friday, September 4, 2015
Prepared by:   Carolyn Kelly (ckelly8384@gmail.com)

Note that this will be the final report for this area. Please check current monitor status for up to date information.
Friday: More windy weather with a slight chance of rain will bring continued good air quality through today and into tomorrow. Areas closest to the fires may smell smoke at times due to smoldering.
Saturday: Depending on fire activity, areas nearest the fires may smell and/or see smoke impacts. Breezy winds will lessen the effects.
