Head of the fire burning in lighter fuels, with spotting. Main concern right now is the shoulders.
IC requesting all transmission power lines be shut down. PGE says it will affects hundreds of thousands in the Sacramento area. Sounds like they will be having a meeting to discuss

For those just waking up and pulling up VIIRS and IR perimeters. Here is the GOES 17 Fire Temp algorithm as of around 5:20 am. Looks be burning pretty hot all night. 24 hour burn periods in place. Prevailing southwest wind flow should dominate and be strong enough to overcome the typical Jarbo Gap wind effects the next 18-24 hours.
Looking at the Bald & Flea Mtn Camera loops. You can see the fire burning hot. The winds didn’t change direction from up canyon to down canyon till about 0430 on the 3hr loops
#DixieFire as mapped at 7pm, 7/14/2021. The fire burned yesterday within areas burned in 2008 (blue). Though the head of the fire was often smoked in, airtankers were able to drop dozens of loads of retardant on the left (west) flank. Data source: NIROPS/Courtney Aviation.
Nothing official here, but she seems to be getting her legs going just before noon. Nice column build right now.
It’s lighting up pretty good on the RAMMB SLIDER
