2020 Fire Season Outlook
Large fire potential may increase to above normal this spring across Southern California in response to the possibility of near to above normal rates of offshore wind events. “Grassfire Season” may be a few weeks earlier than usual in 2020 with resource demand likely centered on foothill and urban interface regions.
