Northwest Fire Potential Summary
Widely scattered thunderstorms this morning in Northeast Washington and Eastern Oregon with very little rain. Low relative humidity and an increase in winds on the east side may create critical fire weather conditions. New fires likely with the biggest risk of new large fires over Northeastern Oregon. Breezy winds expected again on Sunday. Southwest flow with no lightning will moderate significant fire potential through the remainder of the week.
