Northwest Fire Potential Summary
Cooler conditions and windy, with rain likely in most of Washington and the north half of Oregon. Warmer temperatures will prevail in Southern Oregon with increasing winds and increasing humidity. Additional weather disturbances will affect the geographic area on Sunday and around Wednesday bringing cooler and windy conditions with chances of precipitation. Cool and moist conditions will lower significant fire potential through the forecast period.
