2024 Fire Year Outlook

The 2024 fire season in California presents a mixed scenario due to diverse climatic conditions. January is likely to see above normal precipitation in the north, shifting to below normal from February to March. Southern California, influenced by weakening El Niño conditions, expects cooler temperatures and more rainfall through spring. However, the state's snowpack is critically low at 30% of normal. This imbalance raises concerns about potential drought conditions worsening if El Niño's wetter effects don't materialize. The season's outlook calls for vigilant monitoring and preparedness, as these varied weather patterns may lead to differing fire risks across regions.

DISCLAIMER

Information presented on the departments website is a representation of the existing wildfire situation, based on the information readily available to CAL FIRE. We make every effort to provide accurate and complete information, however the data is subject to review and change. This site provides general information concerning an incident. All of our information comes from the firelines and must be approved by the Incident Commander in charge of managing the incident prior to release. As battling a fire, or handling any other disaster is the priority, updates to these sites cannot be guaranteed on a set time schedule. Please use the information on these pages only as a reference. The sites are not meant to provide up-to-the-minute evacuation or fire behavior information. Please refer to the fire information phone numbers provided on this site, and website links for additional information, and monitor your local radio stations for emergency broadcasts. If you live in a wildland area always have an evacuation plan in place. Fires occur throughout the State within CAL FIRE jurisdiction on a daily basis during fire season. However, the majority of those fires are contained quickly and no information will generally be provided on these incidents at this site if the fire burns less than 10 acres. If you would like to obtain information about a CAL FIRE fire burning in your area that is not included on this web site, please contact the CAL FIRE Unit that services your county.
