July/August/September Wildland Fire Potential Outlook

Greetings!   Here is the July/August/September Wildland Fire Potential Outlook issued today.  No big change here:

While we have appreciated the moisture we received lately, we are still behind in overall precipitation for the year.  And while there is probability of showers in the forecast, I’m thinking things are going to dry out – and probably quickly by late July.  So, we will transition into an active fire season certainly by the end of July.  Still time to prepare – I know I have to get our sprinkler system set up!

Thanks!   Allen
