Large fires were very active in northern California and the Oregon Cascades yesterday, including the McFarland, Monument, River Complex, Dixie, Skyline Ridge Complex, Middle Fork Complex, and Janus Fires. Most of these fires remained active overnight.

Currently, 96 large fires have burned 1,883,541 acres in 14 states. Three new large fires were reported including the Mana Road Fire in Hawaii. At about 40,000 acres, it is one of the largest wildfires reported in that state. More than 21,000 wildland firefighters and 26 Type 1 and Type 2 incident management teams are assigned to incidents across the United States.

Check out the Predictive Services monthly seasonal outlook podcast for August. Visit Predictive Services at the National Interagency Coordination Center for more information on current and expected weather conditions and fuels and fire danger advisories. 

The public plays a valuable role in preventing wildfires. In 2021, 34,009 human-caused wildfires have burned 1.5 million acres. Now more than ever, wildland firefighters need you do your part to prevent wildfires and recreate responsibly.

Weather

An upper high will be over southern California and western Arizona today with upper ridging extending through the Great Basin and Northern Rockies. Above normal temperatures are forecast along with minimum relative humidity in the single digits and teens for California, the Great Basin, inland Northwest, and Northern Rockies. An upper low will approach the West Coast with and bring breezy south to southwest winds to southern Oregon, northeast California, and the Sierra Front. Enough moisture will remain for isolated to scattered mixed wet and dry thunderstorms in portions of eastern Oregon, northeast Nevada, southern and central Idaho, Montana, and western Wyoming. Isolated wetter thunderstorms are forecast for southeast Colorado and east of the Continental Divide in New Mexico. Upper ridging over Alaska will keep temperatures above normal today while gusty and dry south winds are forecast for western Minnesota.
