This blog will be issued every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday morning and updated if the weather is changing or critical or interesting weather events are occurring.
Short blog today since we were evacuated. High pressure still holding and will remain in place for the next week. Temperatures will be 4 to 8 degrees above normal. Winds will be mostly light except southwest to northwest in the afternoon. The fire area will continue see west to northwest winds on the upper slopes.
After 7 days the models diverge with the GFS (US) model keeping a high pressure ridge and European weakening the high as a low pressure trough moves into western Canada.
