You can clearly see the burn scar from the last two days in the Panhandle with current hotspots also visible in darker shades in the image above.

It looks like almost all of Roberts and Hemphill counties are covered by burn scars.

Luckily, help is on the way.

Firefighters and local residents should smile at this morning’s HRRR run, which shows a region of moderate to heavy snow moving out and over the Panhandles region tonight into tomorrow. This would be a huge helper for firefighters who will be working a big region to get fires under control before warm temps and strong winds return by the weekend.

It’s a race against time, and here is to hoping we can see precipitation over ongoing hotspots.
