The National Preparednell Level was lowered from 3 to 2 this morning. Less fire activity and more resource availablity justified the decision. Forty-two large fires have burned over 3,134,000 acres throughout the country. Seven large fires were contained: three in Idaho and Montana; and one in Utah.

NIMO (Houseman) has been assigned to COVID-19 support at Forest Service headquarters in Washington, D.C. NIMO (Reinarz) has been assigned to provide wildland fire support to California.

During this unprecedented time, the safety of the public and all wildland fire responders is always the number one priority for all wildland fire agencies. For more information and links to the Geographic Area Plans, visit the NIFC COVID-19 page.

Weather

An upper-level shortwave trough will move over the Pacific Northwest and Northern Rockies as an upper-level trough exits the eastern US. Scattered light precipitation is expected in western Washington, northwest Oregon, and portions of the Idaho Panhandle and northwest Montana. Precipitation will linger from the Mid-Atlantic through the Northeast behind the cold front. Otherwise, dry conditions will continue across much of the CONUS today with mostly above average temperatures in the West and near to below average temperatures from the Plains to the East Coast.
