NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PENDLETON OR
832 AM PDT FRI AUG 26 2016

...FIRE WEATHER WATCH IN EFFECT FROM SATURDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH
SATURDAY EVENING FOR GUSTY WINDS AND LOW HUMIDITY FOR THE EASTERN
COLUMBIA RIVER GORGE AND THE COLUMBIA BASIN...

.DISCUSSION...AFTER A FEW DAYS OF RELATIVELY QUIET FIRE WEATHER ON
THIS SIDE OF THE CASCADES...A COLD FRONTAL PASSAGE ON SATURDAY WILL
RAMP UP CONCERNS DUE TO GUSTY WINDS AND LOW HUMIDITY. THE WINDS
WILL BE ENOUGH TO EASILY CARRY A FIRE THROUGH THE DRY GRASSY AREAS
AND FIRE WEATHER WATCHES HAVE BEEN ISSUED. THE NEXT FIRE WEATHER
CONCERNS WILL FOCUS ON THE THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL AS EARLY AS
WEDNESDAY MORNING WHEN AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE EMBEDDED IN A
SOUTHWEST FLOW ALOFT TRACKS ACROSS EASTERN OREGON AND SOUTHEAST
WASHINGTON. THIS OBVIOUSLY WILL BRING ON THE THREAT OF NEW FIRE
STARTS DUE TO LIGHTNING DESPITE THE POSSIBILITY OF WETTING RAIN.


***THUNDERSTORMS IMPLY STRONG GUSTY WINDS***
***WINDS ARE 20 FOOT 10 MINUTE AVERAGES***
***CWR-CHANCE OF WETTING RAIN 0.10 OR GREATER***
