Northwest Fire Potential Summary
Another hot, dry, day with breezy conditions continue across the region especially in the Columbia River Basin and NE Washington. Fuels will continue to cure and help promote fire growth on any existing or new fires. The large fire potential conditions will not moderate in the short term. There is a slight chance of thunderstorms east of the Cascades.
