Chiang Mai FEB.6-FEB. 18, 2014 too much burning or ok

Will be in Chiang Mai until Feb. 18, 2014.....will my eyes or lungs be burning by then...a mask needed? What do you all think? Please give me your best guesses based on your past experiences. My husband and I can shorten our stay now and do Feb. 6-12 only, changing our already booked air and hotel stays, but we need to do this soon to avoid a lot of extra costs.

We'd like to stay until the 18th, if possible, but not if it will be stinking with smoke. What do you think is your best guess?

We are staying in Chiang Mai until the 17th of February. I am asthmatic and did a fair bit of research on the matter. While nothing is set in stone my research indicated that the worst of the burning seems to occur towards the end of February and in March.

Most of February is decent, March is when majority of the rice field burning takes place. But even in March there are plenty of days when the conditions are beautiful, a lot depends on what the weather is doing on any given day.
