|Projected Incident Activity|
12 hours:Fire behavior was minimal today as moisture moved through the region bringing with it cooler temperatures, higher humidity, and light winds.
24 hours: Minimal fire behavior with a warming drying trend as the next lower pressure comes in from the gulf of Alaska.
48 hours:Moderate fire behavior as the lower pressure moves on shore bringing very gusty winds to the region for a few days.
72 hours: The fire activity could increase as the low pressure pushes interior bringing more gusty winds to the area.
This complex includes the Reach fire, Black Canyon fire, McFarland Creek fire, Cagle fire and Antoine fire. Chelan Complex will be run under WA-NES-001203 which is the same as Okanogan Complex due to database issues.
A weak high pressure is expected to build into the region Friday and Saturday. This will result in a warming and drying trend. Winds will be light and mainly diurnally driven.
