Northwest Fire Potential Summary
As a strong upper level trough moves through the region today, thunderstorms and stronger winds will develop. However, showers, cooler temperatures, and higher RH will mitigate these fire weather concerns. The overall potential for large fires and high risk events remains low across the Northwest.
