Washington’s Smoke Blog reports that Washington wildfires are now contributing to the smoky atmosphere in our area.
The biggest contributors are the state’s largest remaining fires which include the Big Hollow Fire in southwest Washington, the Inchelium Complex on the Colville Indian Reservation, and the Cold Springs Canyon Fire in Okanogan County.
In addition to Washington wildfires, smoke from Oregon wildfires continues to funnel in. As far as any kind of reprieve is concerned, researchers say rain forecast to begin Thursday and last through Saturday should dampen and suppress the fires; such activity is expected to significantly reduce smoke production by the week’s end.
Washington’s smoke Blog says 2020 has produced the dirtiest air in state history.
