Moderate initial attack was reported with 11 new large fires. Firefighters managed to contain six large fires yesterday. The majority of the wildfire activity remains in Alaska, Oregon and Washington.

Please remember: Fireworks are illegal on public lands. Due to the increased fire activity and hot and dry weather conditions, the danger for more wildfires is high. Have a safe Fourth of July!

Weather: A ridge of high pressure remains over the Great Basin and will strengthen as it builds northwestward into northern California and the Pacific Northwest. Very hot temperatures will result over the western U.S. with dry and locally breezy conditions in the Pacific Northwest and northern Rockies. Showers and thunderstorms will form along the western periphery of the high pressure ridge in California, the Great Basin and the central Rockies. Although some storms may produce precipitation and locally heavy rainfall, widespread wetting rain is not expected. East of the Rockies, scattered showers and thunderstorms will form along a stationary frontal boundary stretching from the southern High Plains through the Tennessee Valley. Showers and thunderstorms are expected today in Alaska, with a continuation of cool and mild weather.
