The wildfires of 2020 will not be the new normal for the mid-valley, but there will be increasing fire risk as the climate changes.
I know what the OP was asking, and I read the comments made by other posters. OWS said that there would be more smoke and fires every year, and I doubt she's wrong, but I don't think either OWS or CD was saying that every year will be like last year. I suppose the "yes" could be taken that way, though.

Again, what I said that there would be more heat and drier conditions in the future, and science seems to back that up. How that translates into me saying that last year's fires will be a "new normal" is beyond me. There will be fires, though, and smoke as a consequence.

If every year is like 2020, there won't be any forest left to burn within a decade.
