October 1 Wildland Fire Potential Outlook

By | October 2, 2018

Here is a message from Allen Chrisman, co-chair of the North Fork Landowners Association Fire Mitigation Committee.

Here is the October 1 Wildland Fire Potential Outlook:  https://www.nifc.gov/nicc/predictive/outlooks/monthly_seasonal_outlook.pdf

Not much of a surprise here.  As I was discussing with Lynn Ogle last week, we haven’t had a “season-ending” event, but the door is slowly closing on the fire season in the North Fork.  Note the forecast for warmer temperatures and below average snowpack for the Northern Rockies over the winter.

So, watch out for your burning conditions – we could still have warm, windy days where fires could escape in light flashy fuels.  Always do your test fire (with water handy) to see how it carries in the fuels surrounding your burn piles.  That will tell you a lot.

Thanks to all of you.  Have a great burning season, and a good winter!  Allen
