The wind is expected to switch to out of the NW with wind up to 15-20 mph and gusts as high as 30. We could see more smoke today because of the winds.
The NW wind will test the SE portion of the fire but with everything the DNR and others have accomplished, they feel confident that they will be able to defend against it.
If the weather cooperates, with the NW wind, they hope to do another back burn between the fire line and the dozer lines south of the McMann Lake area. We are expecting southerly winds on Monday.
I don't think there will be another update till later this afternoon, but if I hear anything, I will let ya know.
