Dry Thunderstorms Threaten Pacific Northwest

Wildfire Risk Increasing in Western United States

Lightning caused by storms could ignite new wildfires in the West and Pacific Northwest, NWS reported.

“A strong weather system will move through the Pacific Northwest and across the northern Rockies over the course of the week. Dry, gusty winds are already contributing to increased fire danger in this region, but conditions will worsen on Wednesday as the weather system brings a chance of ‘dry’ thunderstorms. The lightning from these storms could ignite new wildfires that could spread rapidly.”
