Northwest Fire Potential Summary
Large fire potential remains inhibited as cooler and wet weather remains in the Region. Increased likelihood of precipitation is expected for most PSA’s Monday evening through Tuesday. Instability and potential for isolated lightning also decreases. Fire potential is unlikely to escalate until next weekend, when another warm dry period brings higher fire danger conditions back into the Region.
