Due to increased significant wildland fire activity from central Texas to Washington state, the commitment of additional Incident Management Teams, and an increasing potential for new and emerging significant wildland fires forecasted across multiple Geographic Areas, the National Multi-agency Coordinating Group at NIFC increased the national preparedness level to PL4, effective at 2 p.m. MDT today.

Nationally, six new large fires were reported and seven were contained. These new large fires were reported in Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Oregon and Utah. The majority of the large fire activity continues in Oregon.

Weather: The low pressure area over southern British Columbia will slowly begin moving east. As it does so, monsoonal moisture will be drawn northward from the Four Corners into Wyoming, eastern Idaho, and Montana. Expect scattered thunderstorms to develop along a slowly eastward moving cold front that stretches from northeastern Montana southwest in to northeastern California. Storms will be a mix of wet and dry. Elsewhere, expect cooler but breezy conditions across the Pacific Northwest in the post frontal westerly flow. The heat will continue across California and the Four Corners as will the development of mainly afternoon convection, mostly wet across the Southwest and the Sierras. In the East, expect overall cooler conditions. Showers and storms will be present from Pennsylvania south to the Gulf coast. New England will remain mostly dry as will Texas.
