Title: 1954 forest fire weather in western Oregon and Washington.

Author: Cramer, Owen P.;

Date: 1954

Source: PNW Old Series Research Notes No. 106: 6 p

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: For the second successive fire season forest fire weather in western Oregon and Washington was far below normal severity. The low danger is reflected in record low numbers of fires reported by forestry offices of both States and by the U. S. Forest Service for their respective protection areas. Although spring and fall fire weather was near normal, a rain-producing weather pattern persisted over the Northwest from late May to mid-September. The resulting summer fire danger was as low as any on record. Summer weather also had a direct effect on fire occurrence since 1954 lightning storm frequency over the national forests averaged less than one-fourth the 1953 number.
