Nationally, 11 fires burned over 330,000 acres yesterday. Fire activity continues in California along with a handful of fires throughout the southern states. Cooler weather conditions are forecast for the next few days which will help the firefighters reach their suppression objectives.

Weather: Scattered showers and few thunderstorms will develop over the Mid-Atlantic and the Northeast as an upper low drifts moves over the region. A deepening trough in the West will keep scattered showers and thunderstorms over the Southwest and the Great Basin. Cool to mild weather will again spread over most of the country as a cold front pushes in the South. Warm conditions will linger over the Gulf Coast and across the Desert Southwest and the interior California valleys.
