Weather
Today, September 30, is the last issuance for fire season 2014. Check back next year for the new, redesigned 7-day Fire Potential Outlook.


Widespread wetting rainfall has provided another good reset to fuels across the NR region. While an extended warm and dry NW flow pattern is expected to occur over the next week or two...the risk for the fuels to dry out to become critically dry is no longer significant due to shortening days and better overnight rh recoveries.

Thank you for your hard work this fire season. We look forward to serving you next year.
