Wind off the ocean began moving inland into Washington on Wednesday evening, gradually moving smoke out of the region. But it’s a slow process.

Air quality readings improved to “good” or “moderate” in southwest Washington and locations close to the Puget Sound. That’s a significant improvement from “very unhealthy” or “unhealthy.” See the map.
