An unseasonably dry start to April has left vegetation drier than
normal for this time of year along the Oregon and southern
Washington coast. Meanwhile, breezy offshore flow is resulting in
unseasonably warm and dry afternoons, further drying out
vegetation across the region.

Offshore winds are expected to diminish Wednesday, turning more
northwesterly and allowing cool, moist marine air to reach the
coast by late afternoon. However, offshore flow is expected to
return Thursday, continuing into Friday for another round of
unseasonably warm and dry conditions.

Extra caution is advised with fire, at least through the upcoming
weekend. Be sure to check with your local fire district before
burning, as there may be restrictions in place.
