2020 Fire Season Outlook
In Northern CA, above normal significant large fire potential is expected in most areas below 6000 feet in June. In July and August, the lower grass-dominated areas will return to normal due to the lack of wind events, while upper elevations experience above normal large fire potential. In Southern CA, normal fire potential is expected across the region during the outlook period except across the coastal areas and adjacent ranges where below normal fire potential is expected.
