  1. It reached 77F today and I also apparently hit 45,000 miles on my car. Where does the time go? It was admittedly a beautiful day today!
  2. Hey there! Welcome to the community! I'm "kinda new" myself and have found the people here to be very welcoming and helpful. I don't know nearly as much as the great minds here, and they've all been helpful at explaining things for me and answering my questions! So if you ever have questions or are unsure like I am all the time (lol) feel free to let it out! Welcome to the community again and look forward to seeing you around!
  3. WILDFIRE UPDATE (Zero Is Good Edition!) NEW Known Wildfires started today! 8/7/22 Washington - 0 (Third day of no new fires in Washington. Three large fires in the state; Cow Canyon Fire, Vantage Highway Fire, and Williams Lake Fire. Total fires statewide has dropped from 12 to 11, the lowest level since I've been doing this for about two weeks.) Total: 12 Oregon - 0 (No new fires in OR today for the second straight day. There are three large fires in the state. Many fires have been put out in the past 24hrs. The total amount of fires has dropped from 35 to 32.) Total: 32 Idaho - 0 (No new fires in the state for the second straight day. Two major fires still exist, the Moose Fire and Woodtick Fire in remote locations within the Bitterroot Range. The total number of fires remains at 3. ) Total: 3 British Columbia - 7 (Seven new fires in the province. There are now eight large wildfires in BC. BC fire crews have struggled all summer to contain fires. The total amount of fires in the province increases from 56 to 61.) Total: 61 SMOKE UPDATE Smoke is floating aloft over most of Oregon and eastern Washington. It may drift into Western Washington with no air quality impacts. Offshore air has taken the smoke from the east and moved it towards the west. Despite this, Jackson County OR and Klamath County OR are no longer under poor air advisories. Dangerous air quality is currently over Cave Junction OR. All the smoke aloft is purely from fires in California and British Columbia. Washington and Oregon wildfires have produced no smoke beyond their localized areas. As the offshore flow shifts to onshore on Tuesday, expect smoke to once again move eastward.
  4. WILDFIRE UPDATE (Droppin' Like A Rock Edition) NEW Known Wildfires started today! 8/6/22 Washington - 0 (Two days of no new fires. Several fires including one major one has been put out. The remaining large fires are the Cow Canyon Fire, Vantage Highway Fire, and Williams Lake Fire. Total fires statewide has dropped from 19 to 12, the lowest level since I've been doing this for about two weeks. ) Total: 12 Oregon - 0 (No new fires in OR today. There are three large fires in the state. Many fires have been put out in the past 24hrs. The main concern is the spread of fires from Northern CA that are still raging and their embers are causing smaller fires. The total has dropped from 42 to 35.) Total: 42 Idaho - 0 (No new fires in the state. All the fires around the Boise metro that sparked yesterday have been put out. Two major fires still exist, the Moose Fire and Woodtick Fire in remote locations within the Bitterroot Range. The total number of fires drops from 8 to 3, the lowest amount we've seen so far. ) Total: 3 British Columbia - 6 (The least amount of new fires in BC since we've begun recording, with only six. The Keremeos Creek Fire has become extremely dangerous, requiring the evacuation of much of Keremeos, over 1,600 properties. BC mapping has admitted they are days behind at mapping and keeping up with wildfire growth, which today revealed there are now more large wildfires in the state them the previous six we expected. There are now eight large wildfires in BC. The total amount of fires in the province drops slightly from 58 to 56.) Total: 56 SMOKE UPDATE Smoke is currently blowing eastward with all smoke being produced either from fires in California or fires in British Columbia. Smoke from these fires extent into Montana and Wyoming and as far south as Nevada. Western Washington and Oregon are smoke free, except for Jackson County and Klamath County with are under smoke advisories. Unhealthy levels of smoke are flowing from Canada's Okanogan and into eastern Washington effecting communities such as Oroville and Omak. BC valleys around wildfires and socked in with smoke. For Eastern Washington and Oregon, most of the smoke is high and aloft, and not degrading air quality at the surface level.
  5. It does? Dang. I haven't gotten to EPS yet. Still looking through GFS. How so?
  6. It could. Thankfully it goes away quite quick. I don't see any alarms in the future yet of any heatwaves based off the models.
  7. We got some warm temps coming to Portland for the next few days. What I am really looking at is some possible storms on Wednesday. I just hope this doesn't lead to wildfires. Fire-wise, things are going pretty good so far.
  8. WILDFIRE UPDATE (Got to Admit it's gettin' Better Edition!) NEW Known Wildfires started today! 8/5/22 Washington - 0 (This is good news. There are no reported new fires in the past 24hrs. There are now four large fires in WA all of which have crews actively trying to put them out. A brush fire neat Lind sprouted and reportedly burned some buildings, but as of today, the fire is now out. Many fires have been put out, the total has dropped from 26 to 19. ) Total: 19 Oregon - 1 (One new fire started in rural-nowhere between Bend and Burns. The amount of large fires has dropped to three. The long-going brushfire near Ontario is finally out. The main watch is the spread of fires from Northern CA that are still raging and their embers are causing smaller fires. The total has dropped from 50 to 42 thanks to effective firefighting.) Total: 42 Idaho - 5 (Five new fires started, but have all either been contained or taken out already. All were located within the Boise metro from human causes The total fire count will still count these new fires, until tomorrow when they are officially removed from the fire list. Two major fires still exist, the Moose Fire and Woodtick Fire in remote locations within the Bitterroot Range. The total number of fires in ID is now 8. ) Total: 8 British Columbia - 9 (Firefighters really need the help in BC and today was that day. Only nine new fires. There are currently six large fires, all located within the Kamloops and Southeast Districts. The Keremeos Creek Fire has become extremely dangerous, requiring the evacuation of much of Keremeos, over 1,600 properties. BC mapping has admitted they are days behind at mapping and keeping up with wildfire growth. There are also some evacuations due to another major fire near Penticton. The total amount of fires in the province drops from 62 to 58.) Total: 58 SMOKE UPDATE Smoke models show the majority of smoke blowing eastward. Oregon's Jackson County and Klamath County remain under a poor air quality advisory due to the smoke from fires in California. Eastern Oregon is going to be socked in by smoke aloft, and some low to mid-level smoke the closer you get to Klamath County. Smoke has led to moderate conditions in the Treasure Valley extending towards Ontario, Oregon. All of Boise can expect this moderate to poor air for several days due to California wildfires. While air quality has improved in WA's Okanogan Valley, continue to expect smoke from BC to mix in during the course of their uncontrolled wildfires. Spokane's air quality has improved to good for the time being. Smoke from the six major fires in BC is effecting mainly the regions the fires are located in, with smoke low to the ground, mid level, and aloft, as it gets trapped in the mountain valleys. The large fire near Penticton BC is causing dangerous air conditions around Penticton, but not Kelowna to the north as the smoke is flowing south into. One can expect this smoke from BC to flow aloft over Idaho and Montana in the coming days. Smoke from California is currently aloft over southern Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming.
  9. WILDFIRE UPDATE NEW Known Wildfires started today! 8/4/22 Washington - 4 (Big slow down in new fires today, but sadly those fast moving brushfires from the other day are still spreading and causing them to be labeled as "large" fires in WA So there are now four large fires in WA. Prior to the heatwave, there was zero. They are called the Williams Lake Fire, Stayman Fire, Vantage Highway Fire, and the new Cow Canyon Fire. The positive news is, while these are larger fires, they are all listed as having minimal impact and a low chance of becoming a big issue. Total fires dropped from 33 to 26. ) Total: 26 Oregon - 7 (Cooler weather helped damper OR fire growth, but there is still a lot. Yesterday there were two major fires in the state, that number has jumped to five, all located within the Cascade Range or Eastern OR. The large fires are the fast spreading Miller Road Fire in Wasco County, the Beech Creek Fire near John Day, the Willow Creek Fire near Ontario, which is finally slowing down, the new Cedar Creek Fire and Windigo Fire deep in the Cascade's Fire crews are at both Cascade Range fires. Good and bad news along the OR-CA border. The two massive fires are slowing down, but embers from those fires have created a brand new fast burning fire called the Smokey Fire deep in the Klamath's. The total has dropped from 60 to 50 thanks to effective firefighters.) Total: 50 Idaho - 0 (No new fires. Two major fires still exist, the Moose Fire and Woodtick Fire in remote locations within the Bitterroot Range. Total drops from 4 to 3. ) Total: 3 British Columbia - 20 (Fires slowed slightly today due to cooler air. Little progress has been made on any of the large fires in BC. There are currently six large fires, all located within the Kamloops and Southeast Districts. The total amount of fires in the province remains at 62 thanks to smaller lightning induced fires burning out.) Total: 62 SMOKE UPDATE Smoke models show the majority of smoke blowing eastward, but possibly around August 5th, winds turn offshore and smoke could blow into the populated areas of the Puget Sound, Willamette Valley, and Lower Mainland. Oregon's Jackson County and Klamath County remain under a poor air quality advisory due to the smoke from fires in California. A fire near Stayton that was producing smoke has been put out. Eastern Oregon is going to be socked in by smoke aloft, and some low to mid-level smoke the closer you get to Klamath County. Smoke has led to moderate conditions in the Treasure Valley extending towards Ontario, Oregon. All of Boise can expect this moderate to poor air for several days due to California wildfires. Spokane and the Okananogan Valley of Washington will see moderate air quality. Smoke from a fire in Ellensburg and outside of Spokane is hoaxing up the sky in Spokane County and rural counties to the west of it. Smoke from the six major fires in BC is effecting mainly the regions the fires are located in, with smoke low to the ground, mid level, and aloft, as it gets trapped in the mountain valleys. The large fire near Penticton BC is causing dangerous air conditions around Penticton, but not Kelowna to the north as the smoke is flowing south into Washington's Okanogan Valley and mixing into the smoke that flows east to Spokane. One can expect this smoke from BC to flow aloft over Idaho and Montana in the coming days.
  10. What are you angry about on my wildfire post @Mr Marine Layer? Do you want me to include California in my updates for you? I can do that if it helps you out some.
