Pinellas Co Brush Fire

Our beautiful weather over the next week or so, could have a dark side.  I pray not.

I was watching the local Fox station news this morning and they showed 275 back open. I bet it was a flippin mess there yesterday during rush hour.

Checking the models it looks dry as a bone for the foreseeable future. Coastal SE FL may see some rain in the coming days but totals look relatively light. Good luck billsfan.

yes I don't see any rain for us until around the 16th or so and even that is a model guesswork.

Morning. A perfect week lies ahead in the St Augustine area. 75-80 degrees every day with 55-60 degree lows. I was able to give the irrigation a little time off but will probably need to turn it back on next weekend. I only use it when forced to conserve water (and $$)

Good morning. Another pleasantly coolish morning here. Ditto, looks like we don't go above low 80's for the week. I'll take that any day. Would like some rain but?? It is cloudy this morning.

Thanks for the coffee Largo.

What a gorgeous weekend weather wise. Cool, crisp mornings and nice warm afternoons. Lowest temp this weekend for me was 38 on Sunday AM, but it warmed up to 80. Looks like continued dry, spring weather for the week. Lows are forecast to continue to stay slightly cool with nice warm highs, but nothing too drastic either way.

The one at Hernando Beach is 15 miles north of me driving, and the one that broke out today is about 10 miles ENE of me driving...  Probably 6-7 miles as the crow flies.

I expect the next week to have them popping up all over the state, with no rain in the near forecast. As much as I hate for the dew points to rise (as is forecast), it will certainly help a bit.

Keep safe, San. Just guessing here, but it looks like both Moon Lake and Hidden Lake have a fire going. Your near Orchid Lake, I think I remember?

Yup, I've been worried about this for a couple of months. I hope it doesn't get as bad as the last big fire year (98-99 I think).

You have a good memory JR - I am in Orchid Lake.  I used to live fairly close to the new fire, out in Golden Acres.  There is a lot of timber out that direction, I feel for all of those folks.

EDIT: And damn, I didn't know one had popped up in Hidden Lake. That is a nice sub with a private airstrip.

Not as good a memory as I wish I still had, San. I have a reference point -- my wife is in a hand-bell choir that practices at Trinity Pres, just south of you on Little Rd.

I'll look around for a fire map, when I get a chance. I think I found 1 before.

Thanks, BillsFan. I needed that laugh. Rough couple of hours after the reg workday - totally beat up from several directions. Finally done, beer with a shot, a cool rinse in the pool, watching the beautiful moon. Nice ending, and thanks for the sprinkles on top!! Wink

WIld fires are very scary. I live in the middle of thousands of acres of piney flatwoods that currently have a ton of fuel to burn. I keep a defensible area cleared around the house, but if a fire wants it a fire will get it. Here within the last couple of weeks there have been a couple of fires started close by, but our excellent volunteer fire department and the DOF have been able to keep them from getting out of control. We will be worried about a major fire until the summer rains soak the ground and make it difficult to get the fires going.

gee hope you don't get and of those lightning storms...NWS is saying this will be a dry week for our area (central florida) but Thursday might be a few scattered showers..outside of that..rain chances aren't good at all.and still a few months away for the tropics to start up and rain for us I hope...well take care WD and stay alert and safe.
