Wildfire Risk May Increase
There has been little or no rain this autumn and what we have seen is not enough to solve our developing drought problems. In October the division of forestry reported eight times as many fires this October as last year which is well above average. All of the fires are being blamed on people since there was no thunderstorms. With La Nina active this year, climatologists are expecting warmer than average temperatures and drought conditions. Add that to the already very dry conditions and that could make for a very active up-coming wildfire season. The division on forestry says that five of the most active wildfire seasons in recent history have all been during or just after La Nina.
