The biggest concern for this afternoon/evening will be frigid temperatures. Highs will only max in the teens and 20s with breezy conditions and wind chills in the single digits. Throughout the afternoon, a few light snow showers are possible. Any accumulations should stay under 1" and is not a big concern. Additional snow is possible this weekend...head over to the "Weather" tab for more information.
(Durkee, Oregon-AP) -- Hundreds attend a private service in Oregon to remember Alan Wyatt, the firefighter killed when a tree fell on him at the Missionary Ridge fire.
Friends and family say Wyatt was a gifted storyteller and rancher who taught U-S Forest Service personnel how to fell trees with a chain saw. He once was a professional rodeo cowboy, riding bulls and bucking broncos.
Fellow firefighter Mike Fortin says Wyatt had a lot of friends and ``stirred up a lot of dust wherever he went.''
Wyatt is survived by a wife, a son and a daughter. He's the ninth wildland firefighter to die in the United States this season.
