 Northwest Fire Potential Summary
Temperatures will increase, and RH will decrease this week as an upper level ridge builds into the region. Additionally, stronger winds will develop at times along and east of the Cascades. The number of ignitions and large fire potential are expected to increase with the Independence Day holiday and the return of lightning mid to late this week especially along and east of the Cascades in Oregon.
