The figure below shows the current air quality around the State as of 3:22 pm. Note, worse concentrations of smoke are occurring in southwestern portions of the state (indicated by the red dots), while moderate air quality is occurring in the NE and central portions of the state (indicated by the yellow dots). The green dots indicate locations of good air quality and the grey dots indicate a station which is currently not reporting (e.g, Crater Lake National Park).
