Favorable weather conditions helped firefighters contain nine large fires yesterday, two in Utah and one in California, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington. Six new large fires were reported yesterday. Initial attack resources in Oregon and Idaho are ready for the predicted dry lightning and gusty winds.

Two MAFFS C-130 air tankers and support personnel from the 153rd Airlift Wing (Wyoming Air National Guard) have been deployed to Boise, ID to support wildland fire suppression operations in the western U.S.

Weather: Another day of showers and thunderstorms is expected today in the Western U.S. Although there may be some dry thunderstorms with gusty outflow winds in Oregon and Idaho, most storms will produce wetting rain, especially in the Great Basin and Rocky Mountains, where heavy rainfall will continue. Hot temperatures will continue in the Northwest with a cool trough of low pressure in the eastern U.S. Showers and thunderstorms are also expected in the southern Plains along a stationary front.
