The white-pink colored areas represent where smoke is expected to be light to moderate.  The darker shades of red indicate where smoke is expected to by Unhealthy for Sensitive individuals or worse.   Note, smoke concentrations do vary over time, and at times smoke may be worse or better than the 24-hour average. The symbols with a flame indicate where a wildfire is occurring.
