The U.S. Forest Service’s Active Fire Page
Jackson Hole has been spared so far, with no thunderstorms this past week to spark any fires. We’ve been sitting under a dry & stable Southwesterly flow. But the weather not too far to the south of us over eastern Utah & western Colorado has had a few thunderstorms as a relatively narrow tongue of moisture in the upper levels of the atmosphere has extended from Arizona, northward to parts of southern Wyoming.
Some indication that the weather pattern may change by the middle or end of next week, with what looks like some monsoon moisture creeping up from the South, which would likely bring us some thunderstorms.
