Almost the exact same thing up here in Oregon.

I saw the pictures you posted. The one of the UPS truck is pretty dramatic.

The smoke that was over us yesterday was from a fire that's 200 miles away. The smoke was high in the atmosphere, so we couldn't smell it.

Fires have been a fact of life here basically forever; but in the last few years they've gotten worse and worse. As you probably know, in Oregon there are now five fires over 100,000 acres in size. In California, there are three over 300,000 acres. These fires are so big, they're using 747s and DC-10s to fight them. Paradise, California - former home of our own KUIII - burned two years ago and is in danger of burning again.

When it's gonna stop, my friends, is anybody's guess...

Much cooler in SoCal.
Enough fire ash in the air to make washing your vehicle not worth it.

Ahh. Fuck it. get the hose out!

California's fires are so intense, some make their own thunderstorms. NASA calls the formations the 'fire-breathing dragon of clouds.'

Image
A pyrocumulonimbus cloud generated by the Creek Fire in the Sierra National Forest in California, taken from an airplane on September 5, 2020.

As Thalia Dockery's flight to Las Vegas passed over central California on September 5, the passengers caught an ominous view out their windows: A huge, grey cloud mushroomed thousands of feet into the sky.

It looked like the product of an atomic explosion or volcanic eruption. But what they'd spotted was a pyrocumulonimbus cloud — an enormous plume of hot, smoky air that had risen from a wildfire, then turned into a thundercloud in Earth's atmosphere.

"I just so happened to look out my window in shock," Dockery, who took the photo above, told Insider. "I had no idea that it was from a fire until I came home and my son and I researched it."

The particular pyrocumulonimbus cloud she saw came from the Creek Fire, which has burned 212,000 acres in Fresno and Madera counties since it started on September 4. That cloud rose to a dizzying 55,000 feet, which might make it the highest pyrocumulonimbus cloud ever recorded in the US.

"It's about a solid 10,000 feet higher than we're typically seeing with the highest of these plumes," Neil Lareau, a professor of atmospheric sciences at the University of Nevada at Reno, told The Washington Post.

Once rare, pyrocumulonimbus clouds are becoming more common in regions like California and Australia as climate change causes larger, hotter, more frequent wildfires. These clouds, which NASA has dubbed "the fire-breathing dragon of clouds," can grow so intense that they make their own weather. Sometimes, that weather can contribute to still more fires in a dangerous feedback loop.

How a pyrocumulonimbus forms

Pyrocumulonimbus clouds are a subset of pyrocumulus, or fire cloud. They form when big fires cause an upward movement of hot air containing ash and smoke, which can interact with water vapor in the atmosphere above.

Ordinary pyrocumulus clouds aren't especially dangerous and don't affect fires at ground level. But when blazes get big enough – and if there's enough moisture in the air – condensation keeps the air inside the cloud warmer than the air outside of it. That then allows the pyrocumulus cloud to rise higher and higher. Once it reaches altitudes where the temperature is below freezing, raindrops and lightning can begin to form – causing the cloud to become a pyrocumulonimbus.

In some cases, smoky rain produced by a pyrocumulonimbus cloud can help extinguish a fire, but unfortunately for Californians, these clouds don't normally produce much rain in the state. In dry environments, any rain produced by the clouds evaporates before it reaches the ground.

The clouds' lightning can hit the ground, however – and when it does, it can ignite additional wildfires or feed existing ones. Intense winds within a pyrocumulonimbus cloud can also scatter embers, which can ignite fires in new areas or strengthen blazes that are already burning.

Image
NASA's GOES-17 Satellite captured the Creek Fire's explosive growth – and accompanying pyrocumulonimbus cloud – on September 6, 2020.

In rare cases, the winds from pyrocumulonimbus clouds even form fire-induced tornadoes, or "firenadoes." That happens when rising air from a fire gets twisted by wind, becoming a swirling vortex detached from the ground.

Firenadoes are hot, unpredictable, and dangerous: In 2018, a tornado associated with the Carr Fire, which had wind speeds of up to 143 mph, killed a firefighter.

Climate change makes these clouds more common

Large pyrocumulonimbus clouds – the type capable of generating their own weather – used to be rare. But they've become more common in recent years. In December and January, wildfires in Australia produced an unusually high number of pyrocumulonimbus clouds, according to NASA.

The largest pyrocumulonimbus events ever recorded worldwide have all occurred in the past three years, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

That's because large, hot fires are more likely to produce pyrocumulonimbus clouds, and climate change leads to bigger and more intense wildfires.

As temperatures rise, more water evaporates from soil, drying out land. Snow also melts sooner, and spring arrives earlier. In 2017, for instance, spring (defined as the arrival of growing season for certain widespread plants) arrived 22 days earlier than usual in Washington, DC. Early snow melt and high temperatures deprive vegetation of water, drying it out in time for wildfire season.

In California, which has seen its 10 largest wildfires in the last 20 years, the average temperature during wildfire season has increased by more than 2 degrees Fahrenheit since the 1980s, according to a recent Stanford analysis. The length of the state's wildfire season has increased by 75 days since the early 2000s, and a 2015 study found that rising temperatures have made extreme droughts in California significantly more likely.

In the US overall, the top five years with most acreage burned due to wildfires have all occurred since 2005, according to the Congressional Research Service. The country's average temperature has risen by 2.5 degrees Fahrenheit since 1970.

Pyrocumulonimbus clouds can contribute to climate change themselves

A pyrocumulonimbus cloud can pump smoke — which contains carbon dioxide as well as toxic compounds like carbon monoxide and harmful fine particulates — into the atmosphere.

"It acts like a giant chimney, taking smoke from the ground and injecting it to the altitude of a jet aircraft," David Peterson, a meteorologist with the Naval Research Laboratory in Monterey, told the San Francisco Chronicle.

If a pyrocumulonimbus cloud gets tall enough, it can even affect the ozone layer, a protective shield around the Earth that protects us from ultraviolet radiation. Researchers have also found that some wildfire smoke may increase ozone levels below the ozone layer, which can have a greenhouse effect and damage lungs and crops.

Good news for GG and GG......summer's suddenly shot up here...

It went from hot to cool about 2 weeks ago, then it was 46f/7c this morning, and it looks like hot might not come back...

Fall broccolli and kale's lovin' it.

Image
70f=21c

Interesting thing though, the ferns are shot and the Queen Anne's Lace has been around for 5 weeks, but it's still pretty deep green in the woods around here, not a lot of reds, like about mid August, it's unusual.

north westerly wind howling through.....

On the plus side the temperatures have gone up a degree or two.....

Today the weather has been awesome, the sun actually had some heat in it and was quite full on
with almost no wind in the valley..... 8)

Along the coast we're right on the cusp...past the denial stage, into acceptance, we still have some deep green trees, but you can see in the photo on the far shore laces of Fall colors intertwining though still deep green trees that don't know yet...in a few days the deep greens will be gone. I took a ride inland and after about ten miles (16k), and it's mostly fall colors.

Image

Some much needed rain arriving, we're in extreme drought, note the water level is down in the photo above.

Dead dark of night by 7:30 now as we head Orionside...

Our weird weather continues

'Way above average' warm temperatures for parts of the South Island
Helen Harvey·16:03, October the 3rd, 2020.

Image
Steven Walton/Stuff
Temperatures will be in the 20s in Christchurch for the next few days.


The east coast of the South Island is having unseasonably warm weather with MetService saying the temperatures are “way above average”.

On Saturday temperatures on the east coast of the South Island, between Kaikoura and Dunedin, were about 5°C [41.0°F] or 6°C [42.8°F] above average, MetService meteorologist Andy Best said.

On Saturday Dunedin would have a high of 22°C [71.6°F], Oamaru and Ashburton, 24°C [75.2°F]
, and Christchurch 23°C [73.4°F].

“Overnight it will be relatively warm too, much of the South Island will be around 6°C [42.8°F]
above average - in the low teens,” Best said.

The temperatures are way above average for the time of year all due to the strong northwesterly winds which are affecting the eastern parts of the South Island, Best said.

Called a Föhn - or Foehn - wind, ‘’it is caused by moist air, rain and drizzle on the West Coast and strong nor westerlies. And after the moisture has fallen out over the Alps, the air descending east of the Alps becomes warmed up considerably. And it’s very dry as well.’’

Most Cantabrians will know the Föhn wind as the nor’wester.

MetService has a number of severe weather watches and warnings out across the country, mostly for strong wind.

‘’The Canterbury high country has a strong wind warning to midday Sunday. Northwest gales are forecast to be severe at times, with gusts reaching 120kph [74.5mph], then 130kph [80.7mph] from late Saturday evening.’’

Temperatures will stay high on Sunday with Kaikoura at around 27°C [80.6°F] and Christchurch at about 25°C [77.0°F], both 9°C [48.2°F] above average. And Ashburton will hit 8°C [46.4°F] above average
with 24°C [75.2°F].

On Monday the East Coast will stay warm with Gisborne up to 27°C [80.6°F] and Napier at 25°C [77.0°F], and between Kaikoura and Dunedin temperatures will be in the early to mid twenties, Best said.

Image
John Bisset/Stuff
Kaikoura will reach 27°C [80.6°F] on Sunday, with other mid 20 temperatures around the South Island on Sunday.

‘’Even Invercargill gets to 21°C [69.8°F] on Monday.

‘’It’s fairly typical for this time of year. Spring is a very changeable season with many weather features passing through quite quickly and strong winds as well.’’

But what goes up must come down and on Thursday Gisborne, Napier and Hastings will have temperatures about 4°C [39.2°F] lower than average, Best said.

For this time of year we’re normally seeing about 19°C [66.2°F], but temperatures will be down to
13°C [55.4°F] or 14°C [57.2°F]. And in the South Island Ashburton and Christchurch will have a
maximum of 12°C [53.6°F], about 4.0°C [39.2°F] degrees below average.’’

Temperatures in the rest of the rest of country are average for this time of year.

Drought...
I've only seen it once like this about 5 years ago, and it came back, but usually you can just see the top of the rock on the right.

Upper watershed that feeds our town's local reservoir, it's down about a 4f-5/1.4m, judging by the rock.
