Oh, and I should mention that this fire has a name now. It is the "Piedra" fire. It is apparently sparking more fires downwind. 3 additional fires to be exact. It is suspected to be arson. Argh.

Thanks! We need it! There is a slight chance for showers and thunderstorms in the Monday timeframe...but it seems that as the timeframe shortens, the models hedge towards dry in every case. Then there is the risk that any convective cells which do develop will be dry-so that brings with it the risk for more fires. It seems that climate change has drawn the short straw for us...
