Fire activity on the eastern slopes of the Cascades has been minimal. The light rain on Tuesday helped increase containment of fires like McLeod and Crescent Mountain. Some light smoke and fire activity will still be visible in parts of Okanogan County (e.g. Pasayten, Twisp) as stumps, downed logs, and other ground fuels continue to smolder. Expect Good air quality for the next few days with some intermittent Moderate conditions immediately downwind of smoldering fires.
Southwesterly winds are expected in Northeastern Washington over the next couple days. So we shouldn't see much of any smoke from the nearby fires in Canada and Idaho that are still lingering. Expect Good air quality, though some small fires in the area have been pushing the Newport monitor into the Moderate category at times.
Air quality around Yakima is Good but the Miriam fire is still experiencing a little growth. This means that residents in Yakima county that are immediately downwind of the fire may see some intermittent Moderate conditions.
