Ten of the 13 remaining fires are well over 70 percent contained and are expected to be fully contained by the middle of December.

Weather: A lingering upper trough will remain over the northeastern U.S. while a deep trough sinks into the West. Scattered rain and snow showers will linger across the Great Lakes to New England. Snow will also continue in the Rockies with rain and snow along the Oregon and Washington coasts and the Cascades. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop in Texas. Temperatures will remain cold across much of the West and the North. The deep South will continue to be very warm.
