      Mike just a update for everyone. FS is NOT prepositioning aircraft for the great "what if fire.

      What has happened is many airtankers came on late, due to wing inspections, so there ending date has been pushed back. So NIC has placed them in CA where they could be of use until their contract expires.

      Up North the agreement between CDF and FS was for the feds to supply the tankers, and CDF to supply the air attacks. Saved money for everyone and we have plenty of aircraft availible.

      Here is the updated list for FS/BLM tankers to go off contact. Sorry it is on SoCalFire list, but may be interesting to some.

      As you can see there will be an tanker at Ramona until Jan 15, 2004.

      Also for those of the southern CA folks who have been waiting for it, we won't mention no name, cy, here it is, fresh from the FS fire weather folks

      Discussion for Southern California Coast and Valleys...

      A ridge of high pressure over the southwestern states will maintain warm temperatures and light winds through Tuesday. Humidity will also continue to be very low through Tuesday, except over the coastal areas. A weak pacific trough will bring cooler temperatures and higher humidity Wednesday and Thursday. Another ridge of high pressure will build off the California coast Friday through the weekend bringing warm temperatures and low humidity. There will also be gusty northeast winds below the canyons and passes Thursday night through the weekend.

      Lastly, new fire, near Mt Home state forest/, SQF/TUU joint command. Logging slash area. 3 air tankers, 3 helicopters, bunch of engines and crews assigned. Less than 10 acres
