HAIL TO THE CHIEF: Fiery Dust Devil..Up Close and Personal

James Zahara Weather Blog

I was just wondering on the internet to see of any extreme weather happening across the country when I caught a glimpse of this .  WOW!!   Hundreds of tumble weeds caught up in this fiery dust devil, without the dust.  This started off as a controlled burn before it got a bit out of hand.  Talk about up close and personal.  Check it out!!

Intense heat from the fire combined with just enough shearing wind and you can develop these brief fire devils.  Fortunately, the situation was extremely localized and short term.

Still, quite intense.
