Wildfire Aware Situation Report

Provided by the National Interagency Fire Center

Hot temperatures to continue across southern California, the Southwest, and Texas, and expand into the Southeast. Isolated to scattered mixed wet and dry thunderstorms will develop in the afternoon for the central and southern Great Basin, West Slope, and Southwest near and ahead of a stalled cold front. Significant fire potential will be highest over the greater Four Corners area. Breezy westerly winds are also likely to continue across portions of the southern Great Basin, while dry, downslope winds are likely in north-central Montana and much of Wyoming. Dry, but cooler conditions are forecast for northern California, Northwest, northern Great Basin, and northern Rockies. Breezy south winds in Texas will continue to create areas of elevated fire weather conditions, with fuels gradually drying in the Southeast due to the heat. Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms will develop along and ahead of a cold front from the northern Plains into the Ohio Valley where storms are most likely to be severe. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are also forecast for much of the Northeast and Florida Peninsula.

There are no Red Flag Warnings and Watches in effect. The Storm Prediction Center has issued no warning issues for today.
