Moonlight Fire Midday Update

Have a look at this animated weather loop and notice the Mono Winds or East Winds are still driving this fire. Last report the fire was at 19,000 acres with 8% containment.
The satellite image below is from yesterday but you can see from the weather movie above the wind is driving smoke towards the Bay Area and as far down the central valley as Visalia.

Of course the larger concern is the status of Greenville as we noted in an earlier post. The Moonlight Fire is burning in a fairly remote region of California, not a glamour spot like Silicon Valley, San Francisco or Santa Barbara so front line reports will be limited. A dramatic story may be unfolding in the Plumas.
