The New York Post: Rain could bring welcome relief to firefighters battling California blazes

Rain is on its way to the Golden State.

Firefighters battling the deadly wildfires raging at both ends of California will get some respite when a rainstorm hits Tuesday night into Wednesday, meteorologists said.

Additional rounds of rain are expected in Northern California, near the devastating Camp Fire, Thursday and Friday, according to Accuweather Senior Meteorologist Mike Doll.

“The rain mid- to late week will greatly aid crews battling the Camp Fire,” said Doll.

Southern California, where the destructive Woolsey Fire is raging, will also see rain midweek, but not as much as northern and central areas of the state.

Before the storm, firefighters will have to reckon with strong 40- to 50-mph winds Sunday into Monday, which will make wrangling the blazes difficult and could only help the infernos spread.
