Northwest Prescribed Fire Information:

Lists fires (of any size) that singly utilize Monitor, Confine or Point Zone Protection suppression strategies, or use Multiple Suppression Strategies (which may also include a Full Suppression component).

Northwest Fire Potential Summary
Showers move out of the region today as high pressure build in with warming and drying through Saturday. Another disturbance moves in late Saturday and lingers into early next week bringing chances for showers across the region. High pressure builds again early next week and lasts through Thursday. Weak systems try to move across the high pressure system that may bring cloudy conditions and mountain showers, but conditions should warm to above normal with opportunities for some prescribed burning. A fair amount of uncertainty towards the end of the week, but it is looking like cooler wet weather will return. Significant fire potential remains low.
