California Statewide Fire Summary (7.9.17)




Approximately 5,000 firefighters are battling 14 large wildfires in California.

In the northern region, the high will shift southeast today and allow a Pacific low pressure trough to reach the Northern California Coast and the Pacific Northwest. The trough will move slowly northeast, leaving early in the week. Isolated showers and thunderstorms are possible in far northern areas today through Tuesday.

The trough will also bring a slight cooling trend and stronger winds, with southwest gusts to 30 mph in northern and eastern areas. In the southern region, thunderstorm activity will increase over the mountains and deserts today as moisture increases around high pressure centered over the Southwestern states. A weak disturbance in the flow may bring some shower and thunderstorm activity to the coastal and valley locations of Southern California. Temperatures will then cool a couple degrees each day through Wednesday.
