Wildfire Aware Situation Report: Weather Discussion

Provided by the National Interagency Fire Center

A cold front will slow in the southern Great Basin, Colorado Rockies, and onto the central High Plains, with another cold front pushing south into the northern Plains. Scattered to widespread thunderstorms and showers will stretch from Minnesota and the Dakotas southwest through the Four Corners then extending southeast through much of Oklahoma and Texas. The heaviest rain will likely be across north Texas. Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are likely along much of the Gulf Coast and portions of the Southeast Coast and Deep South, but drier and cooler post-frontal conditions will spread through much of the eastern US. A thermal trough will extend northward from northern California into western Oregon and perhaps western Washington, with gusty northerly to easterly winds likely across northern California and western Oregon, including areas of poor to moderate overnight relative humidity recovery. Above-normal temperatures are also expected from central California through much of the Northwest, especially along and west of the Cascades.

There are still Red Flag Warnings in effect for the Southern Oregon coastal range. The Storm Prediction Center has identified no areas of fire weather concern.
