    Good chance that there will be NO Fireworks Tuesday thru Thanksgiving

    Just want to give folks a heads-up, the weather forecasters are predicting strong Santa Ana winds, which will more than likely force the fireworks to be cancelled due to safety issues.

    http://sciencedude.freedomblogging.c...nksgiving-day/


    The National Weather Service has refined its long-term forecast and now says that ”potentially damaging” Santa Ana winds will blow for three days next week, starting on Tuesday and lasting all the way through Thanksgiving, with gusts as high as 80 mph in Fremont Canyon, above the Anaheim Hills. The winds will blow nearly as hard in nearby Santiago Canyon, where more than 28,000 acres of land burned during the October wildfires.

    Forecasters say the winds will ease somewhat by Thursday — which is Thanksgiving — but that gusts of 50 to 60 mph are possible. The relative humidity is expected to fall way below 20 percent. And red flag wildfire warnings are expected to be issued.

    “There could be changes in the forecast, but this is how it looks now,” says Dan Atkins, a weather service forecaster. “We wanted to give people a heads up going into the holiday.”

    These winds just seem to be getting worse and worse each year.

    I don't have a problem with it. That just means the alternate version of the show will be performed.

    I pray that those forecasts are wrong.

    And the fireworks at the DLR would be the least of my concerns with that news.

    In any event, thanks for the heads-up, DB.
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    Actually, I recall lots of Santa Anas back in the '70s when I was young. There were far fewer in the '80s and '90s, but they're picking up again.

    Those are my memories too (and adding the 1960's in there as well).

    Keep in mind that this is a long-range forecast, folks. And there's still some room for hope that the conditions change in the direction of lower winds, before then. So...keep those fingers crossed.

    I'm not sure about the in-park experience, but as you may recall you'll be dealing with very warm and dry winds...for me, they really kick up the allergies, and make me feel chapped, and much more fatigued and irritable. It's probably my least favorite kind of weather.

    Also...with the winds the brushfires seem to always come...so be prepared for smoke and ash in the air if, God please forbid, the pattern repeats itself.
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    Not really... if it's normal strong Santa Ana winds, pyro is canceled all the way.

    I know there is some minor changes they can make to "Remember" if it's a little windy (like not launching the Hub or castle pyro), but Believe doesn't use many of those effects anyways. Remember is normally canceled during windy times to. Of course they will wait until showtime to make the final call in case the wind dies down enough.

    If you're just talking about the snow effect, yes, that will still happen but it will only blow up and over Main Street and then backstage. Although this year at least the castle will have the new light show going on.

    Well, hopefully our governor has his act together and we'll have spotter planes in the air with crews standing by....BEFORE A FIRE BREAKS OUT. Hello?

    Hopefully the winds will die down before next weekend arrives. Depending on where the high is located, some areas will be perfectly calm. *Crosses fingers*

    If you can do a better job than the firefighters out there, go right ahead.

    Before this becomes a wind-whipped wildfire right here and now, let's douse the flame by saying I think he was talking about action by the governor with no reference to the heroic firefighters.

    Back to the topic....
