Seven large fires are burning in four western states. Firefighters contained the Kincade, Maria, Getty and Burris fires in California this week.

Weather: A very consistent pattern will remain in place over the country over the next week as a very broad, cool trough of low pressure becomes further established over the eastern two thirds of the country. Temperatures east of the Rockies will generally be below average with the coldest temperatures being near the center of the trough over the Great Lakes. Periodic weak systems will impact manly the Upper Midwest and the Great Lakes regions with occasional light snow during the period. West of the Continental Divide, the multi-month dry pattern will continue as most areas will continue to receive no precipitation. Temperatures West-wide will be about 5 to 10 degrees above average as high pressure remains entrenched along the West Coast. The expected pattern does not appear to be conducive for large scale Foehn Wind events. Given the time of year, some of the narrow valleys, and possibly the larger Columbia Basin, could fall into a period of extended temperature inversions that could produce fog episodes.
