Planned Outlook

Planned Actions
Smokey and hazy conditions will persist with increasing cloud cover and moderated
temperatures in the mid-60s. Persistent wind speeds will reduce through the night, coupled
with downslope and down canyon winds. RH expected to recover slightly overnight, stabilizing
in the mid 50% range. Anticipated fire behavior will remain active overnight with active
spotting occurring.
24 hours:
Predicted activity will be consistent with behavior observed today. Thunderstorm activity
remains a possibility beginning in the early afternoon, which may significantly influence fire
growth with the associated outflow winds. Observed fire behavior, coupled with temperatures
in the low to mid-90s and RH values 20%-30% will aid the fire spread with short and long
range spotting, especially if T-storm activity develops. Fuels remain receptive with higher ERC
values and moderate to heavy dead standing and down fuels from previous fires.
All Fires are being Actively Suppressed.
