The smoky haze will stick with us for the week, see the planned burn map here
We'll have a lot of planned burns this week to take advantage of the stable weather conditions.
The smoky haze did create a pretty spectacular sunrise though, and one of the burns near Noojee produced a pyrocumulus cloud:
The fire produces strong heating at the ground and strong updrafts of air, carrying water particles (from the burning vegetation) and ash particles upwards. The water parts condense on the ash parts and form a cloud - all in a similar way to how a thunderstorm cloud is produced.
These pyrocumulus can produce lightning, which in turn can start another fire. The clouds are grey or brown, thanks to the ash, rather than the usual particles in a regular storm cloud.
