Northwest Fire Potential Summary
Decreasing winds east of the Cascades today with seasonal temperatures across the region. No lighting is expected through the work week with an increasing threat by the weekend as another warming trend sets in. Large fire threat is above average in rangeland fuels and lower elevation timber due to fire danger that is about 3 to 4 weeks ahead of normal values.
