Fire Weather Forecast FOR southern Oregon and northern California
National Weather Service Medford, OR
501 AM PDT Wed Aug 16 2017

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 1 AM TO 10 AM PDT WEDNESDAY
FOR A COMBINATION OF STRONG WINDS AND LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITIES FOR
FIRE WEATHER ZONE 619...

...FIRE WEATHER WATCH IN EFFECT FROM LATE WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH
THURSDAY MORNING FOR A COMBINATION OF STRONG WINDS AND LOW RELATIVE
HUMIDITIES FOR FIRE WEATHER ZONE 619...

...GUSTY NORTH TO NORTHWEST WINDS EXPECTED WEST OF THE CASCADES
THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING, ESPECIALLY IN NORTH TO SOUTH ORIENTED
VALLEYS...

.DISCUSSION...A thermal trough will strengthen across SW Oregon and
northern California through Thursday. This will cause gusty
northeast winds with poor humidity recovery for at least the next
couple of nights/mornings, possibly longer. This is especially the
case for the mid slopes and ridges of the Coast Range. Rapid drying
combined with gusty winds could enhance the risk of fire spread on
existing fires and also perhaps cause "sleeper" fires to awaken. It
will remain dry through Saturday with high temperatures about 5 to
10 degrees above average. There is a slight chance of
thunderstorms late Sunday into early next week in northeast
California and over the East Side in Oregon.
