Note: Some users might notice intermittent discrepancies in colors shown on the map of air quality monitors above, and those reported on the Department of Ecology's official page. This is because Ecology believes their method of calculating the air quality category (i.e. “Good”, “Moderate”, Unhealthy” etc) is more protective of public health in Washington. If in doubt as to which better represents public health risk, use the more stringent of the two (i.e. the map showing worse air quality).

Here's a view of the smoke from yesterday, July 1 from the Paradise fire Facebook page.
Since the peninsula generally has such good air quality, there are not many air monitors sited over there to help measure what conditions are like. Various webcams may provide a hint though:
