FIRE SEASON EXPECTED TO BE “NORMAL”

Both the National Weather Service and the Northwest Interagency Coordination Center say it is still too early to make accurate predictions, but folks in Northeast Oregon can likely expect a “normal” fire season for the upcoming summer. Both agencies say they are projecting that Eastern Oregon should fare better on the temperature end than the western side of the state. Precipitation also appears to be better for Northeast and Eastern Oregon than the rest of the state. All that means here in Northeast Oregon we’re looking at a normal fire season.
