WEATHER WATCH: November 30, 2018

 

California's newest-worst wildfire catastrophe is now saturated. California's rainy season has been arriving later each year, which extends "fire season."

The current round of storms should be season-ending for this year's wildfires.

In Three Rivers at 1,000 feet elevation, there was .90 inches of rain through Thursday noon. Tire chains will be required to enter Sequoia; the Generals Highway could close during periods of rapid accumulation of snow until plowed.
