Local smoke outlook — Sept. 3: North Columbia Basin area

*This outlook was produced through the support of the Okanogan/Wenatchee National Forest and the Incident Management Teams working on local fires to help inform nearby communities of smoke impacts.


  1. I just wanted to say thank you for helping us be informed with easy to understand information and the accuracy of it. This has helped my family greatly to be prepared for the events and be safe. Again thank you.

  2. The sunrise in the upper Skagit this morning was red and the air noticeably smoky at 7AM. Now at 3PM it clearly smells of smoke although visibility is not as bad as August, it is still affecting breathing.

  3. thank you!!! keep up the good work
