The Puget Sound Clean Air Agency has lifted the burn ban for Snohomish County.
The front expected this evening is showing rain and winds that will clear the air. However, daytime winds will not be sufficient to significantly reduce pollution levels in King and Pierce counties, especially in areas where wood burning is common. So both King and Pierce counties are under a Stage 2 burn ban.
Snohomish County is expected to have earlier daytime winds sufficient enough to reduce pollution levels, allowing the burn ban to be lifted at noon today.
The purpose of a burn ban is to reduce the amount of pollution that is creating unhealthy air usually due to excessive wood smoke. The Clean Air Agency will continue to closely monitor the situation.
