Will Northern CA wildfires be better or worse after rain?
Record rains this winter may have dampened Northern California, but wildfire season is still coming — and certain regions will see it sooner than others. Temperatures in the region are warming up, teetering in the high 80s and low 90s in Sacramento, slowly drying up land drenched in early 2023 storms. According to the state’s Department of Water Resources, California is experiencing one of the largest snowpacks in history … Ken Pimlott, retired chief of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, said because of the snowpack, the onset of this season could be delayed a number of months compared to the last several years.
