Northwest Fire Potential Summary
Hot, dry, unstable, and breezy conditions continue 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 lightning into the weekend mostly along and east of the Cascades in Oregon.
