2024 Fire Year Outlook

Despite the current above-average snowpack and early spring storms, transitioning sea surface temperatures may lead to drier weather. Recent rainfall has temporarily reduced the risk of large fires, keeping it at average or below-average levels for the next few months.

However, with new vegetation growth, dryness may increase from mid-May to June, potentially leading to more small fires, with the chance of larger fires depending on wind conditions. While there are no immediate signs of drought or dryness, this could change as temperatures rise and conditions dry out. Additionally, the annual Southwest Monsoon season might start late, impacting lightning-related fire risk in northern California later in the year.

DATA ACCESS FOR SOFTWARE DEVELOPERS Incident Data

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.
