Is it still 'Very High' or have we moved on to the RED, higher risk section yet?

Hi Ray,

Currently the fire danger is Very High. I anticipate that as the marine influence kicks in today (7/11/08)we will likely drop back down to High.

Contrary to what one might think, the scale is not linear. Over the course of the summer it may increase and decrease as weather conditions and other factors change.

You can get a sense of the current status by viewing the USFS fire danger class webpage: http://www.fs.fed.us/land/wfas/fd_class.gif
