  1. Bill..this is incredible! Nice work. Do you have any idea what caused the fires near and to the northwest of Spokane? It seems like they didn’t start until the front passed by with maybe some CU…does GLM show anything? If ever there were any doubts on the value of GOES16/17 they are gone now. We just need to get this into the hands of decision makers faster. Keep up the great work.

    • I am not sure of the causes, but there were no GLM flashes, and the cu appeared very shallow, so I doubt lightning. I did see an article mention downed power lines as the cause of at least some of the fires.
