Northwest Fire Potential Summary
Warm and dry through the week with a chance of thunderstorms along the Canadian Border through Wednesday. Temperatures will warm to well above normal by the end of the workweek and cool over the weekend. There is potential for monsoon moisture to bring thunderstorms to Southern Oregon towards the weekend, but the location and timing of this is uncertain at this time. Fire potential will elevate with the current dry forecast, with the potential for high risk days towards the weekend if thunderstorms move in.
