Meadow Fire makes run in Yosemite
Posted by admin on September 8, 2014
Details about the fire can be found at http://yubanet.com/CAFires/Meadow.php and at http://www.californiasmokeinfo.blogspot.com. About 2,600 acres burned overnight since its discovery at 12:30 PM on Sunday, September 7, 2014. The smoke seen here dispersed mostly north and slightly east.
The smoke is forecast to disperse in the same pattern this afternoon, Monday, September 8, 2014, as seen in the smoke-dispersion model image below. Concentrations of particulate matter are predicted to be well below Great Basin APCD’s threshold of 100 ug/m3 for a stage 1 health advisory (see http://www.gbuapcd.org/healthadvisory/pressrelease.htm).
On September 9, 2014, the winds are predicted to shift to being from the northwest. An updated version of the model now shows the smoke staying mostly on the west side of the Sierra crest. Below is the model’s worst predicted hour for the afternoon/evening.
