California Statewide Fire Summary
Tuesday, November 13, 2018

More than 8,700 firefighters covering 1,246 fire engines, 130 dozers, 152 hand crews, 122 water tenders, 43 helicopters and numerous firefighting air tankers from throughout the state are battling three large wildfires in California. Out of state resources continue to arrive and assist in these wind-driven fires that have burned more than 225,845 acres and destroyed thousands of structures.

In Northern California, dry weather continues with cool nights and near to above-normal days through the week. Critical fire weather conditions expected to end this morning as winds diminish. Widespread smoke from the Camp Fire will continue to impact the area. In Southern California, strong Santa Ana winds will continue through today, with a gradual decrease on Wednesday. Winds will remain strong enough in areas to warrant an extension in time of the Red Flag Warning through 5 p.m. on Wednesday. The combination of strong winds, low humidity, and very dry fuels could lead to explosive fire growth from any fire starts. Very low humidity will continue Thursday-Friday, but with much weaker winds.

With these current extreme fire conditions throughout the state, don’t wait to evacuate! You should already be PREPARED and GO! early. If you see fire approaching, don’t wait to be told to leave.

California Statewide Fire Summary
Monday, November 12, 2018

Approximately 8,000 firefighters covering 1,027 fire engines, 138 dozers, 145 hand crews, 101 water tenders, 48 helicopters and numerous firefighting air tankers from throughout the state are battling three large wildfires in California. Out of state resources continue to arrive. These wind-driven fires have burned more than 209,103 acres and destroyed thousands of structures. More than 224,000 individuals have been impacted by these fires.

High risk of significant fires due to gusty north northeast offshore winds, low humidity through early Monday from the western Cascade-Sierra Slopes to the coast. High pressure will continue to produce warm, dry conditions through at least Friday. Wind speeds will decrease by midday Monday. Afternoon humidity will be low through Monday with poor overnight recovery. Another round of strong Santa Ana winds in the south will go through till Wednesday morning. The strongest winds shift southward to San Diego County Monday. Low relative humidity will occur over most of Southern California the next three days. Onshore flow will bring shifting winds and slightly cooler weather back during the second half of the week. Winds of 20-30 mph with gusts to 45 mph will occur in the Inland Empire and Orange County through Tuesday night. In addition, northeast winds of 20- 25 mph with gusts to 50 mph will be possible in favored Sierra Foothill valleys into Monday. All offshore winds should cease Wednesday morning.
