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, and into portions of the central Great Basin, Colorado, and southeast California. Some of the thunderstorms will likely have strong to severe outflow winds, with haboobs possible where thunderstorms drift off the higher terrain into the lower elevation deserts. Hot, dry, unstable, and occasionally breezy conditions will continue across parts of Texas and much of the West, especially along and east of the Cascades and Sierra into central Idaho. Scattered to widespread thunderstorms are expected across much of the Southeast and New England, while showers and thunderstorms are likely for the Upper Midwest into the western Great Lakes. Cooler temperatures will expand through Oklahoma into north Texas and eastward into the Lower Mississippi Valley and southern and central Appalachians. Warm and dry conditions will continue for the Interior, with isolated thunderstorms forecast from the eastern Interior into the Copper River Basin.

There are currently Fire Weather Watches in effect along the Washington and Idaho border and the Southern Oregon and Idaho border. The Storm Prediction Center has not issued any Fire Weather areas of concern.
