The majority of the fire activity continues in Arizona and New Mexico. Nevada had an increase in initial attack, but firefighters managed to contain the fires. Nationally, two new large fires were reported in Arizona and Nevada. Four fires were contained: three in Nevada and one in Washington.

Weather: Dry conditions across the interior of Alaska will continue, but temperatures will be a few degrees cooler as the high pressure area over the central portion of the state weakens slightly. Hot and dry conditions will continue across the West in the Lower 48 as the strong ridge of high pressure remains amplified along the Pacific Coast. Widely scattered storms will continue to be possible across the Four Corners and Great Basin regions in the afternoon where breezy winds and low rhs will contribute to critical fire weather conditions. Looking east, Tropical Storm Cindy will make landfall somewhere between the coastal areas of southeastern Texas and Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The main concerns with this system are for coastal flooding. Meanwhile, the Northern Plains and the Great Lakes region will remain cool and dry under a breezy westerly flow.
