Estimated fire map for the Silverado. As always this is for discussion and it not meant as a tactical tool, it is for discussion and orientation and was created solely from remote sensing with no on site validation.
Shutting down all tankers due to wind shear.
Winds in 20’s and gusts in 30’s, no super close active NWS stations with data though. Closest is John Wayne airport which shows wind sustained at 26, G 33, RH of 8%.
4 additional Type I STEN requested now.
Look at Bell Canyon RAWS. It is just up the hill.
Yeah, I did, but data in the table wasn’t matching.
Fremont Canyon on NWS San Diego shows the following: RH of 11 winds ENE 45, G74
Fremont Canyon RAWS will be the most representative RAWS for this area. It was 45mph g74mph at 0751hrs.
