Northwest Fire Potential Summary
Continued dry today with windy and unstable conditions in Eastern Oregon promoting elevated risk of significant fires. Moisture will move into Central Oregon and the Blue Mountains today which could produce isolated thunderstorms and “High Risk” of significant fires. Conditions moderate slowly through the week as an approaching weather system slowly cools the region and brings an increasing potential for showers and thunderstorms. Significant fire potential decreases through the week with the cool showery pattern.
