Northwest Fire Potential Summary
Slow moving low pressure will bring a cooler, showery weather pattern to the region through 
Monday. Thunderstorms have the potential to produce locally heavy rain.  Although, large fire
potential remains low, lightning activity may bring an increase in initial attack.  Gusty conditions 
associated with thunderstorms will be of concern in areas with light and flashy fuels.
