Wildfire Aware Situation Report: Weather Discussion
Provided by the National Interagency Fire Center
Isolated to scattered mixed wet and dry thunderstorms are expected from the Southwest and southern California through the Four Corners, central Great Basin, central Rockies, and into the northern Rockies. Gusty outflow winds will accompany some of these thunderstorms. Elevated to critical fire weather conditions will develop across the western and northern Great Basin and Inland Northwest through the northern Rockies due to west-southwest sustained winds of 15-25 mph gusting 30-40 mph amid minimum relative humidity of 5-20%. Showers are expected across western Washington and northwest Oregon amid onshore flow. Well above normal temperatures will continue for much of the West, especially the Intermountain West and southern California, and across much of the Plains, Texas, and into the Midwest. Thunderstorms are likely along the Gulf and East Coasts, with scattered thunderstorms and showers over the Midwest and Great Lakes. Above-normal temperatures and scattered to widespread thunderstorms will continue over much of the Alaska Interior.
There are currently Red Flag Warnings and Fire Weather Watches in effect for eastern Washington in Central Montana and Southeastern Oregon into Western Idaho, Northern California, and Nevada. The Storm Prediction Center has issued Elevated and Critical Fire Weather areas in conjunction with the Red Flag Warning and Fire Weather Watches.
