Fires Continue, Snow in the Future

16 Oct 2008, 4:02 pm


The southern California fires forecast on Monday flared up as predicted. Myfoxla has reported that the Marek Fire is contained and evacuations have been lifted, while the Senson Fire is 50% contained with full containment expected on Saturday.

Myfoxshots has some excellent pictures of the fire and rescue efforts for both fires. An amatuer videographer captured some video of the fire that was aired on CBS, and posted to youtube, note below:

Snow is possible next week. A look at our HAMmodel 84hr snow depth product for NAM shows melting snows through Monday at 00z with no expected additional accumulation. However our GFS 180hr product displays a few opportunities for snowfall, with the most likely occurrences after the beginning of the week. Please refer to this post for descriptions of related products, animations of both the NAM and GFS are below.
