The Predictive Services section at the National Interagency Fire Center has issued their National Wildland Fire Potential Outlook for November, 2012 through February, 2013. As we get closer to winter, there are no areas identified as having above normal wildfire potential for that period.
Here is an excerpt from the report:
Significant Fire Potential
- For November above normal significant fire potential only remains across small portions of the Hawaiian Islands. By the December through February timeframe no above normal significant fire potential is expected in the U.S.
- Below normal significant fire potential is expected across much of the southeastern U.S. for the entire forecast period
- Elsewhere expect near normal significant fire potential to exist. In many areas of the western U.S. this indicates fall and winter conditions that are generally considered out of fire season.
