The winds have shifted, blowing the ash plume and smoke to the North of us. The sun even peeked out for a while.
And right before the winds shifted, and picked up, there was a quiet period where it looked like snow, and some more piled up on the cars.
Now it's all blown away. A large amount came in the garage, but SLW and I swept it all out, and I moved things around, so she could get her little car inside for the night.
This was the fire map as of this morning:
This the most recent map:
The map below shows the current burn area in black, and yesterday's burn area in white. It really blew-up overnite.
The winds have picked up some more, the temperature is down to 64*, and the barometer is climbing. NWS is predicting heavy, wet snow, with accumulations of 2"~6" here in the foothills, and 8"~18" in the mountains. It probably won't stick around much past Wednesday, but the forecast is for a 40%~50% chance of rain here in the foothills.
