Friday is going to be a major #FireWx day. If you live within any of the areas below, it's a "pack your go bag/back your car into your driveway" day. Pay attention! It could save your life. #wildfire #weather
#Extreme fire conditions in Colorado tomorrow, if you live along the Front Range. I am not an official source, but I would strongly advise--if you live anywhere against brush/grassland/prairie/forest--to be ready to leave in an instant. #Colorado #FireWx

While working live on wildfires/storms, I frequently discover mapping crossovers to my quake work.
Today I'm tracking yesterday's fires + March 2017/2020 fires & mapping with current/past #Kansas #earthquake swarms + faults. ⬇️👀

Admittedly, July had more stuff than June. Alot of material to cover & all. We will be happy to reveal them all in the #WxWrapUp for July 2021. (🧵 of 10; (1/10)
#Tropics: Elsa may have brought the memes, but the impacts were no laughing matter. Elsa nearly caused $1B in damages & effects were felt from Barbados to Greenland where it snowed. Elsa is the earliest "E" storm on record. (2/10)
The EPac had the furious Felicia which brought us a treat of an amazing annular structure. It was a very small tropical cyclone with the CDO extending out ~80mi in diameter. You can put Felicia in the eye of Typhoon In-fa because it was that small, and speaking of which... (3/10)

Fire danger spiking again: after a barely 24-36 hr dip in ERC values from spotty precip/cooler temps last weekend, levels have shifted quickly back to near max high values (extremely dry). Bay marine region 3A in Summer/Fall like values (1/2) #CAwx #FireWx ImageImageImageImage
In retrospect the signs of an early fire season start have been there for awhile. Spring fuel moisture values tracking near or at record lows vs. what should’ve been seasonal highs. Extreme drought cause and effect. (2/2) #CAwx #FireWx @nbcbayarea nbcbayarea.com/news/local/cli…
Ignore the fact it’s early May, conditions are Summer dry already esp. hills, parched by drought and above average temps. Add wind and you’ve got a Fire Weather Watch for interior NorCal starting Sunday. Important messaging by @NWSSacramento #CAwx #FireWx Image

A potentially historic fire weather event is unfolding across the West, especially over the West Coast, during the next 3 days. Widespread critical fire weather is expected west of the Rockies, including offshore/downslope winds in the Cascades/Sierra/Coast Ranges #FireWX #fire
The number of active large fires that will experience critical fire weather is astounding and concerning. These sort of conditions ignite fires on their own, but now dozens of large fires will feel the impact from strong winds/low humidity. Overnight fire activity is expected
Some good news is precipitation (rain/snow) is expected over much of Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico. This will slow down large fire activity in these regions and help free up some firefighting resources

Extremely dry and easterly windy conditions will develop over the Cascades later today followed by a moderate event in the N Sierra Foothills, Sac Valley and N Bay Area, then a Santa Ana. Quick roundup of what NWS offices are saying about this event: 1/n
#cawx #orwx #firewx
NWS Portland:
“All the ingredients are coming together as expected for a potent and likely historic September East Wind event
... that only occurs a couple times a century in September. Extreme fire danger and locally damaging winds are likely. 2/n
NWS Portland cont:
"The strongest east winds still appear to focus through the gap in the high Cascades between Mt Adams and Mt Hood … western portions of the Columbia Gorge, Portland/Vancouver metro area, north Oregon Coast and Coast Range” The Coast Range too!. 3/n
