Aircraft Soundings: Wednesday, July 27, 2016 - 7:15 am
Smoke layer from the NE to the South; descended from yesterday to 7500 ft. The Warm Springs Rattle snake fire looks calm- possibly controlled at this point. High clouds to the NW about 14,000 ft. Light turbulence @ 5500 ft. No clouds over Central Oregon- a beautiful day.
Despite a good pibal, and good burning conditions, we did not burn any fields yesterday. Garlic harvest is keeping many growers busy, and the Jefferson County Fair (beginning today) is keeping others busy. This season is off to a slow start; the Spotted Frog issue kept many growers from planting fields earlier- because of not knowing how much water would be available. 0 acres burned, 0 complaints.
