McCash Fire - Heavy Precipitation and Strong Gusty Winds on Sunday

McCash Fire Wildfire
News – 10/23/2021

Work will pause for weather on Sunday due to anticipated heavy rainfall through Sunday, and increasing winds through Sunday and into early Monday. Heavy rainfall of 2 to 4 inches on Sunday, following an extended period of significant daily rain amounts will result in potential for landslides and debris flows on the McCash burn area. A Flash Flood Watch has been issued by the Medford National Weather Service office for early Sunday through the afternoon hours.  In addition, saturated soils combined with strong gusty winds of 20 to 50 mph will increase the potential hazard of snag trees falling on personnel working in the McCash burn scar on Sunday into early Monday.
