Lolo Peak Fire Announcement

Smoke Outlook September 13, 2017

Incident: Lolo Peak Fire Wildfire
Released: 9/13/2017

Smoke: Stronger winds today are expected to be west-northwesterly at 10-20 mph, gusting up to 25-30 mph. This should encourage smoke ventilate, and it will likely encourage active fire behavior. A slight chance of thunderstorms also brings a chance for gusty erratic winds.

Fire: A red flag warning has been issued for this afternoon. With both live and dead fuels available to burn, active fire behavior is anticipated. Backing, flanking and head fire with single tree and group torching possible. Short duration crown fire runs could happen where slopes and fuels align. The potential for spotting remains very high.

Other: The cold air mass over British Columbia is on track to move through the Pacific Northwest on Thursday. Along with much cooler temperatures, precipitation is expected on Thursday and into Friday. Snow accumulation is possible above 6000 feet. Lolo monitor has been replaced by a neighborhood monitor:
