The past year marked the driest in California since 1924, according to recent data released by state water officials. But California is forecast to get its first major rainfall of the season this week. A major storm could bring torrential rain to central and Northern California later this week, which could help damp down some wildfires in the mountains while preventing new ones from starting.
