Initial attack activity was light yesterday. Three large fires were reported, two in California and one in Washington. Firefighters are making excellent progress toward containment goals on several large fires in Oregon. Fire managers in Idaho and Oregon are prepared for the dry lightning storms forecast for today.

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: Showers and thunderstorms will develop over most of the Intermountain West and Rocky Mountains today as moisture continues to rotate under a strong ridge of high pressure aloft. Isolated dry thunderstorms with gusty outflow winds are possible in portions of Oregon and Idaho, but elsewhere storms will bring precipitation, especially near the Rockies where heavy rainfall is expected to begin today. It will remain hot over the western U.S. with showers and thunderstorms expected in the Gulf Coast region along a cold front.
