The Northwest Interagency Coordination Center’s Predictive Services unit is keeping a close eye on the rapid weather developments across our landscape. The predicted high risk days are Thursday, Friday and Saturday when all extreme fire indicators will line up, causing forecasters to predict lightning activity and resulting fires.
“Hot and dry weather and extremely dry fuels provide the perfect combination for wildfire when paired with lightning that is expected later in the week,” says Katie Lighthall, Program Director for Project Wildfire.
