Northwest Fire Potential Summary
Currently a large, cold and snowy upper level low pressure area is positioned over the northwestern states, adding to the much needed snowpack across the southern Cascades. A second faster moving, yet weaker system is expected to move into the northwestern quarter of the country Saturday, briefly bringing more snow. A stronger third system will move into the Pacific Northwest Saturday evening from the Gulf of Alaska, taking a southerly track through Oregon. By Tuesday a fourth system will arrive in the NW, followed by a fifth system on Thursday. Mountains along these system tracks should do well for snowfall.

Northwest Fire Potential Summary
Expect mild and dry conditions with offshore flow developing this week as high pressure builds into the Pacific Northwest. The ridge will likely get interrupted briefly by a fast moving weather system on Wednesday. That wave will bring a shot of showers to the northern part of the region and breezy winds. Conditions will then return to warm and dry the remainder of the week.
