2022 Fire Season Outlook

In the North state, the weather outlook for October through January calls for mixed temperature and precipitation anomalies due to highly variable weather patterns. October should be a mix between warmer and drier conditions followed by cool and slightly moist periods, with a few northerly offshore wind events. Lightning is not expected to be a big factor during this outlook period, with long-term drought likely to improve later in the fall. In the South, with the potential for a later than normal start to the rainy season and the ongoing drought, significant fire potential is expected to remain above normal over portions of Southern CA.
