The Alaska Interagency Coordination Center’s Predictive Services desk in Fairbanks just released its “March Forecast for 2015 Alaska Fire Season.”

“Due to the low snow cover and dry, exposed fuels in southern and southwest Alaska, fire potential will be increasing in late March and April. May has the potential to remain above normal but we have no strong indications that conditions will remain above normal through June.”
