2020 Fire Season Outlook
This year’s fire season has already seen above-normal activity. A dry winter, followed by a hot spring creates a grim outlook, according to The National Significant Wildland Fire Potential Outlook issued July 1.
July – September: Above normal temperatures along with drought conditions expected to lead to an expansion of wildfires across Northern California.
October: Above normal fire conditions forecasted in parts of Southern and Northern California. This is due to dry and hot conditions combined with Santa Ana winds. A La Niña is expected to develop leading to dry conditions.
