Last I heard there was 79% containment on East Canyon. They did scan the fire last night as you can see no new growth to report and really very few hotspots.
Sand Creek fire is estimated at 60 acres, all of the fire growth in the last 24 hours has been on the Northside of the fire based on satellite data.
As I said yesterday the weather, for the most part, looks warm and dry this week. The best chance for afternoon storms will be in high altitude locations. Mid to late a week a system will pass well to the north of us, as it does the pressure gradient will tighten and increase the winds. In its wake, the atmosphere will become unstable and we may see a chance for some light showers on Friday. Too early to tell how that is going to work out. I will have an eye on it all week.
The new Euro long-range model run will be out late tonight/early tomorrow. I will be checking it out to see how consistent it is to the last run. Having studied the data a little more, I have noticed it loses consistency after 14 days.
Thanks for following. Please contact me with any new sightings of smoke plumes.
