8/1/2017 Afternoon satellite image of smoke over Washington

The Tuesday afternoon satellite image from today shows the extent of the smoke episode over Washington caused largely by smoke coming in from Canada and spreading south. More of the state monitors are now showing deteriorating air quality and conditions will likely get worse before they improve. (The corner of the state that is white? It's still waiting for the satellite to pass over.)

Monitor conditions as of 2pm Aug. 1

Follow the link below to see an animation of predicted smoke movement from the Canadian fires through tomorrow afternoon. (You may need to click on the right facing triangle under the image to start the animation.) It looks like much of the state will experience impacts.
