Humidity recovery only reached the mid 40s last night. Sunny skies in the morning will bring temperatures to the mid 70s with some clouds moving in late morning. Low humidity will be in the mid 20s with winds out of the east 8-13 mph. Isolated showers and thunderstorm activity will begin around 11:00 AM. Winds near thunderstorms will be gusty and erratic, with gusts up to 35 mph.

Current Situation

Conditions continue to allow firefighters to safely access the fire in the Buffalo Peaks Wilderness (BPW) area; warming drying trends will allow more fuel to burn, especially in the afternoon. Containment lines and aerial bucket drops will limit fire spread. This fuel condition will provide the possibility of visible smokes from within the interior of the fire. Fire personnel will be monitoring fire behavior with lookouts and aircraft. Almost half of the fire personnel will be working on the west side of the fire in and around the BPW area.

On the north side firefighters continue to patrol fireline and protected structures. Crews will secure and hold the perimeter on the east side along HWY 285. Rehab continues along the dozer lines. Division P will hold and improve firelines from FS 433 to BPW boundary and secure fire perimeter west to the BPW boundary. Along contingency lines to the south crews will be rehabbing along FS 435 to reduce chipper debris. Crews are improving contingency line from DP 55 west to the Lynch Creek Trailhead utilizing Trail 618 and the road system. Hotshot crews will improve and secure fireline from the BPW boundary to the north. The dozer line between Division A and Z will be patrolled to determine containment.
