Dry enough for ya? It'll be so nice to get some heat relief starting tomorrow and into the weekend, but things might actually be getting worse if fire gets into the mix. A FIRE WEATHER WATCH will be in effect tomorrow morning (6/4) through tomorrow evening. A 'watch' is one step away from a 'warning.' If things get worse, it will be upgraded to a warning.
A Fire Weather Watch means our area is getting prime for fires...that means low humidity and very dry conditions. Add a little wind to that and there you go. We're expecting 15-25 mph winds tomorrow as we cool down to the low 90s. Even more wind is on the way as we get into just the upper 70s by Saturday. The problem is that with the exception of some showers or thunderstorms near the Blues or Cascades, we're not expecting any rain.

Today these parks are located throughout the country in 25 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The land encompassing them was either purchased or donated, though much of it had been inhabited by native people for thousands of years before the founding of the United States. These areas are protected and revered as educational resources about the natural world, and as spaces for exploration.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving
To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics
(released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.
Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
