In partnership with the Library's Gallery Exhibit, the Library has put together a guide to resources about wildfires in California

Weather & Wildfires

Weather plays a major role in the birth, growth and death of a wildfire. Drought leads to extremely favorable conditions for wildfires, and winds aid a wildfire's progress -- weather can spur the fire to move faster and engulf more land. It can also make the job of fighting the fire even more difficult. Learn more about weather science, climatology, and climate change using the resources on this page.
