More than 10,000 firefighters and support personnel in California continue to make progress toward containment goals on six large fires.

Weather: The passing frontal system will weaken as it moves from the Pacific Northwest across the Northern Rockies. However, valley rain and mountain snow is expected as the front passes. Across California, the beginning signs of a redeveloping northerly flow will begin to emerge across central potions of the state. In the East, the unseasonably warm and dry conditions will continue, especially across the Southeast as high pressure continues to strengthen over the Deep South and Florida. East Texas and Oklahoma could see scattered showers and storms in the afternoon.
