Source Document: By Miguel Llanos Summer forecast calls for hot and dry with wildfires

U.S. can expect a summer with temperatures above average and a significant wildfire potential, government forecasters warned. Some parts of the U.S. are already feeling the heat. Dozens in Colorado have fled their homes due to a fast growing fire near Fort Collins. While historic Crown King, Arizona mining town remained evacuated as a nearby fire continued to spread.

Greg Carbin of the U.S. Storm Prediction Center said “You may see a pretty significant wildfire season developing” across the West. To see fires to the extent that they are this early isn’t a good sign.” Strong signals exist especially for the Southwest U.S. in terms of a hot summer, added Jon Gottschalck, a forecaster at the U.S. Climate Prediction Center.

  1. I am glad I live in New England where we usually get plenty of rain. I wouldn’t like having to live (and garden) in drought conditions. Hope your wildfires are under control soon.
