 Northwest Fire Potential Summary
Hot, dry, unstable, and breezy conditions continue east of the Cascades today, which will promote fire spread on any existing or new ignitions. There are chances of lightning with isolated thunderstorms mostly across Eastern Oregon. Even with limited coverage of thunderstorms large fire potential increases due to dry fuels and hot, dry, unstable, and breezy weather.
