Wildfire Aware Situation Report: Weather Discussion

Wildfire Aware Situation Report

Provided by the National Interagency Fire Center

Isolated to widespread mixed wet and dry thunderstorms are expected across much of Arizona, New Mexico, into Colorado, mostly along and east of the Divide, and possibly southern Utah and Nevada. Some of the thunderstorms will likely have strong to severe outflow winds, with haboobs possible if thunderstorms drift off the higher terrain into the lower elevation deserts. Away from thunderstorms, hot, dry, unstable, and breezy conditions will develop across much of Texas through the Southwest, southern California, and southern Great Basin. Well above normal temperatures will extend northward through much of the West, especially the Central Valley and Intermountain West, with gusty winds in the Cascade Gaps. Above normal temperatures will extend out of Texas into the Southeast as well. However, a cold front will continue to push southeast with thunderstorms expected from eastern Oklahoma to the Georgia coast, which will limit the extent of hot, dry, and breezy conditions. Thunderstorms and showers are likely to continue for the Mid-Atlantic through the Northeast and portions of the southern and central Plains. Warm and dry conditions will continue for the Alaska Interior

There are currently no Red Flag Warnings or Watches in effect. The Storm Prediction Center has issued an elevated fire weather area along the Washington and Oregon border.
