Wildfire Aware Situation Report

Provided by the National Interagency Fire Center

Isolated to scattered mixed wet and dry thunderstorms are expected from northern California into southern and eastern Oregon, mostly along and east of the Cascades. Scattered to widespread wet thunderstorms and showers are likely from northern Oregon and central and eastern Washington through central Idaho and southern Montana. Isolated to scattered mixed wet and dry thunderstorms are possible from the north Cascades into northwest Montana, with dry and breezy westerly winds in the Washington Cascade gaps into the Columbia Basin, but cloud cover remains uncertain over these areas. Hot, dry, and breezy conditions will continue across much of Texas, Oklahoma, and the Lower Mississippi Valley, while developing across much of the Southwest and greater Four Corners region. Isolated dry thunderstorms are possible over the Mogollon Rim in east-central Arizona into west-central New Mexico and in southeast New Mexico. Scattered to widespread thunderstorms are forecast from the northern High Plains extending southeast through the MidMississippi Valley towards the central Gulf Coast and southeast Atlantic Coast. Widespread rain will fall over New England as well. Above-normal temperatures will continue for much of Alaska, while isolated mixed wet and dry thunderstorms develop over the Copper Basin.

Red Flag Warnings are in effect for Central Texas and Far Northern California into Eastern Oregon and Western Idaho. The Storm Prediction Center has issued an Elevated Fire Weather area for the Southern High Plains and the Pacific Northwest.
