Northwest Fire Potential Summary
Fire danger indices will continue to rise through the weekend. Lightning and atmospheric instability are expected to arrive over Central and Eastern Oregon late Friday and Saturday. This is likely to trigger some fires with the biggest risk of new large fires over PSAs NW11 and NW12 (Eastern Oregon). General winds will increase from the west on Saturday through the Columbia River Gorge and east slopes of the Cascades on Saturday as well. All this means increased fire activity is likely over the weekend.
