Wildfire Aware Situation Report: Weather Discussion

Wildfire Aware providing quick notifications about wildfires.
Wildfire Aware Situation Report

Provided by the National Interagency Fire Center

Hot temperatures above 100 degrees will continue across much of Texas, Oklahoma, and the Lower Mississippi Valley. Southerly sustained winds 12-22 mph will develop across much of central and north Texas into southern Oklahoma as well, and minimum relative humidity below 25% will remain widespread. Isolated to scattered mixed wet and dry thunderstorms will develop on the fringe of a monsoon moisture surge from northern California into central and eastern Oregon, central Idaho, and northwest Montana. Scattered to widespread wet thunderstorms will develop within the plume of moisture across the northern Great Basin into Wyoming and southern Montana. Breezy west winds will develop across southeast California into southern Nevada and much of Arizona, ushering in much drier conditions, but isolated to scattered mixed wet and dry thunderstorms are likely across the greater Four Corners area into New Mexico. Scattered to thunderstorms are forecast across the central and northern Plains through the Mississippi Valley to the Great Lakes and Northeast. Severe thunderstorms are most likely in the central High Plains, with heavy rain and local flooding likely in the central High Plains and southern Appalachians. 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 into Southeast Oklahoma, Far Northern California into Eastern Oregon, and Western Idaho. The Storm Prediction Center has issued a Critical Fire Weather for portions of Central Texas into Southwest Oklahoma.
