Fire Weather Forecast FOR southern Oregon and northern California
National Weather Service Medford, OR
500 AM PDT Fri Aug 18 2017

...Dry and unstable conditions expected today through Saturday...

.DISCUSSION...High pressure centered over the eastern Pacific and
low pressure over the Northern Rockies will continue to maintain
northwest flow aloft through Friday. At the surface, this will
lead to northeast winds and moderate to poor relative humidity
recoveries each night and morning through Sunday morning along
and near the coastal ranges. Elsewhere, it will be dry and hot
each afternoon, especially this afternoon. Dryness and instability
this afternoon will also lead to a moderate to high probability
of active wildfires becoming plume dominated.  Early next week the
wind flow aloft will become more southerly, leading to increasing
probabilities of thunderstorm activity Monday into Tuesday.
