Smoke Plume from the Gnarl Ridge Fire from N. Bonneville, WA

G. Ridge Fire effects some @ a distance

Here in North Bonneville, WA we can see the smoke plume from the Gnarl Ridge Fire, the wind today at surface level is very light, however upper level winds are pushing the smoke plume in a WNW direction forcing the smoke towards us. Also, due to these winds we have ash falling around the area.

People in the wind path of this fire should be on heightened alert as to the possibility of hot embers being carried over distances and new fires being started.

Lastly, the composite radar loop is pretty intense right now, as it shows a moderate echos from the fire, as if the event is creating it's own weather system, as some fires do.
