 Northwest Fire Potential Summary
Fire danger is rising across the region as a warming and drying trend sets in. Temperatures are poised to rise well above normal over the weekend. General winds will gradually decrease for the majority of the area, although some dry and gusty northeasterly winds are possible over the passes of the Cascades and Oregon Coast Range. By Sunday afternoon some lightning fires are possible over sections of Southern and Central Oregon spreading northeast on Monday. The combination of rising fire danger and lightning means the risk of new large fires in PSAs NW06 and NW07 will rise into the “High Risk’ category for Sunday and Monday. On Tuesday a cooling trend with winds will set in. Initial attack activity for the region will likely increase into the moderate category as a result of the lightning. Regional Preparedness Level will probably rise above 1 by Monday or Tuesday.
