Fire Danger Normal Here

NIFC

This fire management region of the country will likely face generally normal fire potential over the next several months according to the report issued in early April by the National Interagency Fire Center in Boise.  The Eastern Great Basin Region typically has little significant fire potential in April according to their report; and while overall precipitation totals have been somewhat below normal for March, La Niña patterns are expected to continue across the area through the month meaning slightly cooler and wetter than normal conditions across Idaho and slightly warmer and drier than normal conditions across southern Utah. Then, for May through July the potential for significant fire events is expected to be generally normal with a small area of above normal developing in the far southern portion of the region. A shift in the overall weather pattern NIFC says is expected to occur sometime in the late spring from La Niña to neutral or possibly to a weak El Niño pattern. If this transition happens, fire forecasters say the current prognosis for above normal along the southern border of the Area could no longer be valid. Slightly southeast of our region, however, NIFC points out that above normal potential for significant fire events will continue in spite of some increase in precipitation forecast later this month.
