Burn bans have been lifted for Snohomish and King counties, effective at 1 p.m. Monday, but due to stagnant weather conditions, a Stage 1 burn ban remains in effect for Pierce County, until further notice.

“We are lifting the burn bans in King and Snohomish counties because winds are picking up and temperatures are warming,” said Dr. Phil Swartzendruber, agency forecaster. “But Pierce County is still under the influence of cold and calm conditions, which could cause pollution to build up in areas where wood-burning is common.”
