Slightly cooler weather has helped the firefighters in northern CA though along with the cooling, it has been a bit windy. The North Pass Fire in Mendocino National Forest near Covelo still only 35% contained and a real challenge to fight, in steep remote forest.

It's been a heat wave for the last week - today it was 102 here (down from yesterday's 106) and the fires over in Lake County about 30 miles away are making a lot of smoke. And, there some high clouds - muggy hot miserable to be outside kinda weather! High temps are forecast through the weekend and into next week. Not good news for the firefighters!
