The Summit Fire is still burning it's way south west and the smoke plume visible from the
Morgan Hill area is slowly moving it's origin southwards. The photo below was taken
around 2pm with the fire apparently flaring closer to the summit ridgeline. Compare it to
the photo on the right which was taken around 7am.

A large wildfire ("Summit Fire") has started this morning in the Santa Cruz Mountains west
of Morgan Hill. Strong overnight winds from the north are continuing and strengthening
which will create a major containment challenge for CALFIRE. A large smoke plume is
clearly visible from our vantage point in the eastern hills and on our webcam. Over 500
acres are believed to have burned already.

Keep an eye on the weather forecasts and alerts this week. It is going to be HOT!
Temperatures in Morgan Hill could approach 100°F from Wednesday through Friday. Very
low humidity will also mean high fire risk. Don't play with matches!!

In the last few days, I have been experimenting with a live streaming webcam service
offered by Camstreams. You can launch the results from our webcam page (see "live
stream"). The total number of concurrent viewers is limited to fifteen by Camstreams but is
also a function of stream bandwidth. Our present limit is five. For this reason (and others)
the stream will periodically appear to be offline. Feedback welcome.
