Oregon Fire Potential: An upper trough will move through Oregon today and tomorrow bringing cool and cloudy conditions with some showers. Thunderstorms will develop over southern and eastern Oregon today although the main effects will be more cloudiness, cooler temperatures and higher humidity. Thunderstorm chances diminish through the end of the week before increasing again over the weekend across eastern Oregon. However, most of the thunderstorms are expected to possess wetting rain. upper trough will move through the area over the weekend before the ridge begins to build next week. The probability of new large fires developing through this weekend remains low.  There are still two fires ongoing in Oregon, although they are at full suppression:
