Horsethief Fire Weather Page

If you are really into the weather and especially weather related to fire behavior, you can follow along more closely with information posted on the NWS Riverton website page that was set up to assist the fire weather forecasters working the Little Horsethief Wildfire near Jackson,WY.

Main link is here: NWS Horsethief Fire page
I will set up a direct link to this page at the top of the  Jackson Hole Forecast Page and also under the Fire Weather Information section at the bottom of the Jackson Hole Information Page on www.mountainweather.com

Some of the cool stuff of interest might be the Hi-resolution Satellite photos that show the smoke plume best when skies are clear during the day, see below:

There is much more to view here, some of it is more technical fire weather forecast products & computer models, but other info of general interest is the Loop from the Web Cam on top of Teton Pass that looks towards the fire.

And also the Fire Weather Briefing Page for Teton County Emergency Managers
