Northwest Fire Potential Summary
Dry and warm weather will prevail across the geographic area again today. Fire potential will moderate through the weekend as a weather system cools the region and brings an increasing potential for precipitation. Moisture should be in place across Western Washington and much of the Cascades by Saturday evening. Lower elevations east of the Cascades will likely see limited moisture and higher winds but cooler temperatures, cloudy skies, and elevated relatively humidity reducing significant fire potential. Continued cool and unsettled weather is forecast through next week.
