The 2021 Wildfire Season did not appear to be as severe as the prior two seasons, but the way it ended was severe in a different way – with a historically-strong atmospheric river rainstorm. At that point it wildfires were already starting to wind-down.

This post will review the 2021 season in reverse chronological order, starting with the major rain event that finished it off, and ending with the report of season itself. Then we will visit a state a bit further north that has been experiencing some major climate change driven wildfires of their own.
