SEATTLE — The National Weather Service has extended its red flag warning for wildfire danger to most of Western Washington, including the Seattle area, where such warnings are rare.
Forecasters say near-record heat Monday will be followed by thunderstorms Monday night and Tuesday with lightning that could spark more fires.
The red flag warning now covers most of Washington and Oregon. Areas of Eastern Washington not covered by the warning are under a fire weather watch.
The National Weather Service forecasts highs Monday west of the Cascades in Washington and Oregon in the mid-90s. Highs east of the Cascades could break 100.
Forecasters say the thunderstorms and clouds from showery weather should bring Northwest temperatures back to normal by midweek.
