There is a fire north east of Williams. The Eagle Rock Fire started yesterday. The high winds hampered efforts. The aerial crews were grounded because of the winds. The winds have also brought much low dewpoints. Overnight the dewpoint at my weather station dropped to 12F. The Airport is report 20F for the dewpoint. It had been hovering in the low to mid-30s. Winds are going to whip up again today. They should be out of the southwest. More fire information can be found at the Southwest Coordination Center. They run a Twitter update as well.
Lake Powell rocketed past my guess for max water level for this summer. I guessed 3635 feet as the max height. It gain 0.54 feet (over 6 inches) on Tuesday to reach 3635.14. The 3642-43 foot range may still be a reasonable end point as the rate of increase has fallen from it’s recent highs of about 3/4 foot per day. The inflow rates to the lake have dropped as well. More data can be found at the Lake Powell Water Database.
