The Farmer’s Almanac Predicts That the Los Angeles Area Will Experience Rain in January 2018

The California Wildfires have now become the largest in the state’s history. One of the few elements that will heavily decrease these wildfires is rainfall.

According to the Farmer’s Almanac online, they are predicting that rainfall will take place in Southern California during the first week of January. In addition, they also note that rain will occur during the last two weeks.

The Farmer’s Almanac reports accurate data 80% of the time. In contrast, The Weather Channel is showing no signs of rain to take place in the Santa Barbara area in the first week of January. They do show one day of rain on January 16.

The Thomas Fire is 65% percent contained according to CNN. They also reported:

‘About $110 million has been spent fighting the massive blaze, fire officials said. This year has been the costliest for wildfires in US history. Damages have topped $10 billion, and that was before the current fires began in Southern California.’
