From the text ... 'Because temperature is forecast to increase almost everywhere, all the regions except the mid-Atlantic region project increases in wildfire activity, despite the variability in precipitation forecasts. The magnitude and impact of future wildfire activity will likely be most pronounced in the three westernmost regions, which have already seen increases in fire occurrence, area burned, and fire season length due to warmer temperatures. In the mid-Atlantic, increases in precipitation and humidity, as well as forest fragmentation and fire suppression, are likely to offset increases in temperature, resulting in only small to moderate changes to wildfire activity.' © 2014 Elsevier B.V.
