It’s still pretty smokey…


The Air Quality ALERT issued by the Washington State Department of Ecology remains in effect until 12 PM PDT Thursday.

Smoke from wildfires across the region will continue to linger over Western Washington through at least Thursday morning. Expect the air quality to remain unhealthy for sensitive groups, with locations
between 1000 and 1500 feet likely to experience the worst air quality conditions.

Conditions may improve somewhat late tonight especially along the coast.

Children, the elderly, and individuals with respiratory illnesses are most at risk of serious health effects. These groups should limit or avoid spending time outdoors.
