U.S. Wildland Fire Potential Outlook by NOAA for June to September
Discussion: The NOAA Wildland Fire Potential Outlook for June through September is indicated in Fig. 1-4. A slow evolving fire risk is expected on the West Coast possibly a little more slowly than indicated by NOAA in California. Short-term heavy rains may ease the Southeast fire risk for June. Note the Southeast fire risk is eliminated in the Southeast by August due to tropical cyclone activity. The California risk is in full-flight by AUG/SEP. The Northwest risk may be stronger than indicated due to the one region in the U.S. reliably expected to gain drought conditions this summer season.
