Wildland Fire Potential for Fall 2013

On September 1, 2013, the National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC) issued its National Significant Wildland Fire Potential Outlook for the remainder of 2013. The outlook provides an assessment of current weather and fuels conditions and how these will evolve in the next four months.

Here’s a summary of the outlook for September through December: 


  • Above normal for most of the central and southern California mountains


  • Above normal for California’s northern and southwestern mountains
  • Return to normal for the mountains of central California

November and December

  • Return to normal for the southwestern mountains of California

For all the details, read the complete NIFC report.

A common question from insurers is “How can I know if I’ve underestimated my wildfire risk?” FireLine®, powered by AER technology, Verisk Underwriting developed State Risk Reports to provide a snapshot of state-specific wildfire risk for the most wildfire-prone states. We invite you to download a complimentary state risk report.
