Daniel Swain in TIME: ‘This is Crazy.’ A Record 2 Million Acres of California Have Burned This Year With Heat Conditions Predicted to Continue

The state is experiencing another wave of record-breaking heat this weekend, and offshore winds beginning around this time of year—the Santa Anna winds in the south, and the Diablo winds in the north—are expected to spread fires further towards the coast of California, according to Swain, where most people live.

“All indications are that this fire season is going to continue to be worse than average,” Swain says.
