According to the National Weather Service weather forecast, there was no significant rainfall at the burn scar of the Museum Fire on July 27 and 28. The rainfall increased again on July 29 and 30, and scattered storms are being predicted for the weekend on July 31 and August 1, 2021.

17,900 out of 32,000 sandbags were put on July 27 and 28 only. There are fifty sandbags providing places around the Museum Flood Area up until today that are for the elderly and disabled people. The total amount of sandbags is around 700,000 that has been placed around the Museum Fire Area since 2019 and will still be available both pre-filled and self-fill at the South parking lot of Coconino High School at 2801 N Izabel and Coconino County Health and Human Services at 2625 King Street.
