WA air quality alerts Show more
An Air Quality Alert for smoke has been issued until 11 AM PDT Monday.
Southwesterly winds will continue to bring smoke off the WA coast from fires in OR into the area through the weekend. Air quality will be unhealthy to very unhealthy across most of Western WA through at least Sunday. Expect conditions to be worse during the overnight hours as calmer winds allow smoke to settle.
After days of unhealthy levels of PM2.5, we've now got the full-on smoke in #Seattle this morning, and after sleeping in the basement due to yesterday's recording-breaking heat, I'm staying down here most of today because I can smell smoke upstairs.
Smoky #Seattle morning, but we might finally get some fall rain sprinkles at the end of the weekend, which would wash the air.
