Northwest Prescribed Fire Information:

Lists fires (of any size) that singly utilize Monitor, Confine or Point Zone Protection suppression strategies, or use Multiple Suppression Strategies (which may also include a Full Suppression component).

Northwest Fire Potential Summary
Expect mild and dry conditions with offshore flow developing this week as high pressure builds into the Pacific Northwest. The ridge will likely get interrupted briefly by a fast moving weather system on Wednesday. That wave will bring a shot of showers to the northern part of the region and breezy winds. Conditions will then return to warm and dry the remainder of the week.
