Map information provided courtesy of the UDSA Remote Sensing Application Center using data provided by the National Interagency Fire Center. The data is subject to change.
A significant warming and drying trend will begin today over the western U.S. as an upper level ridge of high pressure stretches from the southern Plains westward into the Great Basin. This will bring the onset of record warmth to portions of California and Oregon. Also, high-based monsoonal moisture will begin to stream northward on the periphery of this feature for a chance of thunderstorms in southern California and the southern Great Basin. These storms will not have wetting rain, but could be accompanied by gusty outflow winds. Storms in the southwest U.S. will be much wetter and extend from Arizona through New Mexico and into southern Colorado. Over the eastern U.S. the Gulf Coast including Florida will see a continuation of showers and thunderstorms along a stationary front.
