Haze from wildfires surrounding Western Washington brings declining air quality
SEATTLE — The lingering effects of those wildfires hundreds of miles away in Oregon and California means Western Washington’s air quality here at home is steadily getting worse. It's supposed to really sweep in from the south on Thursday. "A significant intrusion of smoke from wildfires in Oregon and California is expected to drift into the area tomorrow morning through the afternoon hours," the National Weather Service in Seattle said Wednesday night in a twitter statement with the GIF below. "Most of the smoke will remain aloft, but take precautions if you are sensitive to air pollution!"
