While the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration had good news for much of the country on Thursday with the release of its winter forecast, predictions for the next few months in Northern California were more reserved.

“Fire can be unpredictable, and all it takes is a shift in weather conditions to cause the fire to do something that you don’t expect it to do,” said Jeff Denny, supervisory park ranger for Redwood National and State Parks.
