Northwest Fire Potential Summary
New large fire potential remains at background levels, but increased ignitions are expected due to Independence Day. Temperatures will begin to increase, and RH will decrease this week as an upper level ridge builds into the region. Fire danger indices will continue to rise through this week, more rapidly east of the Cascades, with chances of lightning returning around mid-week.
