Researchers from the California-Nevada Climate Applications Program, a NOAA RISA team, contribute to new article on winter wet–dry weather patterns as evidence for increasing wildfire hazard in CA

The study reveals that weather patterns are changing in a way that enhances wildfire hazard in California, while the frequency of weather patterns linked to historical floods is not diminishing. These changes exhibit the rising hazards of weather extremes in California’s present and future.
