  1. Thanks for providing the updated map. When I looked out this morning I made the comment, “that looks like drift smoke.” I was flying last night in the area just enjoying the evening and thought then that it doesn’t seem as clear tonight as usual. Now I know why.

  2. This site sucks too. Who wants to see smoke maps of old fires. I would like to see a smoke map of today. What good does it do me to see a smoke map from 20 days ago?

    1. You commented on an article that was written and posted 20 days earlier. We occasionally post information about wildfire smoke, but not every day. You can see them all, including the most current, here. https://wildfiretoday.com/tag/smoke/

      After you do a search with Google you can click on search tools, and then anytime, and specify for instance that you only want to see an article published within the last 24 hours.
