Northwest Fire Potential Summary
Hot, dry, unstable, and breezy conditions will increase in coverage across the region especially along and east of the Cascades. Fuels will continue to cure and help promote fire growth on any existing or new fires. The number of ignitions and large fire potential are expected to increase with the return of some lightning today, tomorrow, and possibly into Friday mostly along and east of the Cascades in Oregon.
