Calif. Mountain Fire Nears Idyllwild Amid Strong Wind Warnings

http://www.nbclosang...-216134621.html

Quote

...On Friday afternoon, Fire spokesman Capt. Mike Lindbery said a storm front headed toward the region in could provide some relief with cooler weather and a chance of rain, but it might make the situation much more volatile with lightning and strong winds.
In the Pine Cove evacuation warning, authorities described a dangerous "ice cap" that could form atop a column of smoke and ash northwest of the fire. The smoke column could create create a thunderstorm, and associated lightning and wind.
"Eventually the weight of the ice will cause the column to collapse. When the column collapses, strong downdraft winds push the fire in multiple directions, placing firefighters at risk," the warning stated....

We've been hoping the rain will clear the air and douse the fire here, but apparently it's just another careful what you wish for kind of situation.   :(

I saw lightning early this morning, but it was to the southeast, well away from the fire.  Whew!  The wind died down, the humidity remains high, the fire is about 50% contained.

Good.  I hope they get it completely under control quickly.  I'm glad it's not near where you live.

Mark: I saw the title of this thread and I thought somebody was talking 'bout one of James Taylor's greatest songs.

I heard today the rains had slowed down the wilffires progress in California. That's was great news, I thought.

The fire is 92% contained, should be fully contained by tomorrow.  The thunderstorm the other day, which was not the scary kind firefighters were worried about, did help, as does the continuing humidity.

When I drove to the VAMC Monday morning, the smoke really got to me, but had somewhat abated by the time I was heading home.  Yesterday I hardly smelled any smoke at all, there and back.

Great news.  I hope they can get it all squelched and that there are no new ones.

This morning I saw a wisp of smoke coming over the mountain, hopefully the last of it, now that it's contained.  Then the rain started, so, with any luck, it's raining up there too.

It seems to be squelched.  We've had less than triple digits for more than a few days, which is good, and the humidity remains high, which is better for fire control than for dry heat lovers, but that's okay.
