FireSmoke Canada

Welcome to the Canadian portal for information and resources about smoke from wildland fires. We provide access to services and data for professionals in the air quality, health & safety, emergency management, and science & research communities as well as the public. We are also a community of practice that advances policies, plans & organizations to address wildland fire smoke issues.

Our primary service is smoke forecasts from wildland fires using the BlueSky Canada system. This system produces forecasts of hourly ground-level concentrations of smoke particles (PM 2.5) from wildfires up to 48 hours into the future. The forecast output is experimental and is subject to uncertainties that are inherent in weather forecasts, wildfire detection/emissions and smoke predictions. Forecasts are published twice-daily for Canada, Eastern Canada and Western Canada.

I think that the smoke is coming from the "Chelan Complex Fire" which has burned over 227,000 Acres. Its directly South of the Okanagan Valley.

this will give you a better idea of where the smoke is coming from. when you see Tonasket, i am sitting right between two fires hoping that i don't have to try to save my parents house. :/
