Might be a stupid question I was in Chiang Rai, Chiang Khong for a week and and I was not seeing all the smog I read about on here or is the burning season done in that area?

I would call this day 1 of the season. Can't see the mountains. AQI will break 100 today.. Reported tomorrow.

Was AQI 80 yesterday for the old city sensor.

Get out your masks and filters.

Here is the number, thanks to City News to call to report fires: 1784

The hotline number is completely useless. They were totally disinterested and just gave out the fire department's number. And that was from a Thai reporting it.

So much for the city authorities taking burning seriously

Sympathize with that! And which department and how did the fire department respond? And what is the number you were given?

The air quality definitely "went south" over the weekend. Hiking in the hills on Thursday, fresh air. Cycling on Saturday, iffy. Cycling this morning - awful sad.png

Looks like the whole of Cambodia is on fire today. I only first saw the fire map yesterday and the difference in one day is incredible. Now it looks like the lower northeast of Thailand is starting to burn a lot more. Amazingly good around CM but I notice that provinces to the south are starting to fire up.

Vietnam looks fire free! Check it out.

Must agree.

Air Quality down and temperature up.

The swimming pool I use was cold last week.

This morning just a slight chill to the water.

On a Good clear day I can see the Doi Saket Hills from my Condo on the lower slopes of Doi Suthep. Today only about half way across CM.
