Nationally, 14 new large fires were reported. Firefighters managed to contain seven large fires. A total of 66 fires have burned over 1,130,000 acres.

Weather: The Four Corners high will remain firmly entrenched over the western half of the country. This will lead to another hot and dry day across the West. Monsoonal convection will be present across the Four Corners, the central-southern Sierras, and the southern Great Basin. Widely scattered storms are also possible across central through eastern Montana, northeastern Wyoming, and along the South Dakota/Nebraska state line. A breezy westerly flow along with low humidities could lead to critical fire weather conditions across the Columbia River Gorge and in wind prone areas across the Columbia Basin. In Alaska, another cold front will move southeast across the Brooks Range into the Interior bringing cooler temperatures, breezy winds, and some precipitation.
