Initial attack activity moderated throughout the states including Oregon and Washington. Eight new large fires were reported and two were contained. Four of the large fires in eastern Oregon were combined into the Kitten Complex which has burned 20,664 acres. Firefighters contained the Sunnyside Fire in Utah as well as a new large fire in Washington.

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: Breezy winds are expected for portions of the Rockies and the Great Basin today as drier air filters in behind a Pacific cold front. Otherwise, it will be warming and drying very quickly over the western U.S. as a ridge of high pressure strengthens. A warm front over the Mississippi Valley will help to trigger showers and thunderstorms with heavy precipitation, while further south a cold front will focus storms along the Gulf Coast.
