The majority of the large fire activity remains in the Southwest where nine of the 11 new large fires were reported. Currently, seven fires in Arizona have burned over 13,500 acres.

Ten wildland fire suppression crews are assigned to support large fires in Alberta, Canada.

Weather: A broad trough will remain over the West with a ridge in the East. A series of smaller upper level lows will move through the western trough, bringing scattered showers and thunderstorms to the Intermountain region, especially across the Great Basin and the northern Rockies. Persistent southwesterly flow through the central U.S. will bring strong thunderstorms to the Plains while scattered rain and thunderstorms develop over the eastern States. Temperatures will remain very warm with high humidity across the central and eastern U.S. Mild conditions in the West will gradually warm through week. A persistent ridge over Alaska will keep warm and dry conditions for most of the state through the week. Downslope winds will affect the Alaska Range over the weekend.
