The Southwest is also still looking at the risk of some monsoonal moisture this week.
It’s good news for the ongoing exceptional drought, but bad news because too much rain in a short period of time will bring the risk of dangerous flooding.

Elevated to critical fire weather is also ongoing for a widespread section of the West.
Above-average temperatures, drought, gusty winds and dry lightning has been fuel for wildfires.
