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, dry, and breezy to windy conditions will develop across portions of Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, and the Lower Mississippi River Valley. Hurricane Dora will move away from the Hawaiian Island chain and allow the stronger wind speeds to ease as the day progresses. The combination of tropical and monsoonal moisture will fuel isolated to scattered wet and dry thunderstorms and gustier outflow winds across portions of the Desert Southwest and Great Basin. A weak low-pressure system will track over portions of the Pacific Northwest and provide gustier southwest winds and shower chances across the Washington Cascades, while drier conditions return across large portions of the northern and central Rockies. Heavier precipitation will continue to affect portions of the eastern US, including the Ohio River Valley to portions of the Southeast. Warm temperatures will remain across the northern interior of Alaska, with more moderated conditions and scattered showers and thunderstorms across the southern half of the state.


Red Flag Warnings remain in effect in eastern Alaska, the Hawaiian Islands, and Central Texas in Southern Oklahoma. The Storm Prediction Center has issued areas of fire weather concern with Critical Risk for Central to North Texas.
