Large fire activity remains scattered throughout the West. Most states experiencing fire activity, only have a handful of large fires. Alaska and Nevada are the most active. Firefighters contained the Odell Fire in Montana at 370 acres.

A fuels advisory was issued for the Great Basin for potential extreme fire behavior due to low fuel moistures and heavy fine fuels.

Weather: High pressure will continue to dominate the pattern across most of the U.S. A broad trough will move through the northern Rockies bringing scattered showers and a few thunderstorms along the Canadian border from Washington to the Dakotas. Scattered thunderstorms will develop over the Four Corners region. In the East, scattered showers and thunderstorms will form in the Northeast and across the Gulf states. Conditions will remain very hot across most of the eastern and central states with warm weather over New England. The desert Southwest will remain very hot while the Northwest and the northern Rockies receive slightly cooler conditions. In Alaska, scattered showers and a few thunderstorms will develop across most of the state. Temperatures will continue to be mild.
