I just received a warning of excessive - record setting - heat for all of the PNW. Check your local forecast and be prepared. It is expected to begin this coming weekend and last thru the middle of the coming week.

I’m in SW Oregon, NOAA weather is predicting 110 on Saturday. Holy cow, it’s only June! We are very worried about the forest fire situation. It’s been a very dry spring, and there are still spot fires flaring up from last years fires.

Fires can go underground in the proper soil conditions ( muskeg or such like ) and keep smouldering for years.
Yep. We've got peat areas that have done that in drought years. Fire starts here, seems to be out, pops up a couple weeks later 1/4 mile away. Fortunately, we're not that dry yet. And it looks like we'll be getting rain for the next 5-6 days.
