TENNANT, Calif. -- A few lingering showers and gusty winds may persist over the fire area of the Antelope Fire Sunday morning, with some clearing and drying expected in the afternoon.

Crews will be back out on the line Sunday, continuing to search for smoldering material close to containment lines and extinguishing any remaining heat. Additional containment was achieved Saturday night thanks to wetting rain and the continued diligent work of firefighters. Some heat remains in large piles in the Tamarack area, and crews will continue to mop that up. In Medicine Lake, crews are unwrapping structures and collecting excess equipment to be brought back into camp.

Crews will continue to patrol and suppress any isolated heat sources that remain at least through a true season-ending event. Residents can expect to see smoke interior to containment lines for the foreseeable future as pockets of unburned vegetation continue to ignite and burn.

Lava Beds National Monument remains closed to visitors. A Forest Closure is in effect for the Antelope Fire area. In addition, fire restrictions are in effect for both the Klamath and Modoc National Forests

Mostly cloudy conditions with some showers in the morning, Sunday will give way to partly cloudy skies by the afternoon. Winds will be lighter, and primarily blowing to the east. At night, skies will clear, bringing areas of fog and likely below-freezing temperatures. The rest of the week will bring drier conditions with cold nights and warm days.

A Smoke Outlook for the Antelope Fire is available at https://wildlandfiresmoke.net/outlooks/NECalifornia.

A closure for the Antelope Fire area remains in place. Information on (and a map of) the closure can be found at Klamath National Forest - Alerts & Notices (usda.gov)
