The city of Seattle woke to a sprinkling of ash Tuesday morning, as smoke from regional wildfires blankets the skies yet again.

Coupled with record-breaking heat, the smoke could cause problems for those with health conditions. According the Washington Department of Ecology, we can expect smoke and ash for the next couple days until a cooler weather system and rain comes to the region later this week.
