A spokeswoman with the Florida Forest Service says the extra rainfall can present a challenge during this busy wildfire season.
"With all this rain, now we're going to have a lot of new growth" said wildfire specialist Annaleasa Winter.
Winter says wildfire season peaks from March to May. She says the rain typically helps during wildfire season but continuous downpours can eventually hamper the schedule for prescribed burns.
"The fire season of 1998, in that Spring we were under water as well."
Winter says the fire season in '98 became a very active one after Northeast Florida received heavy downpours. She says when things begin to dry out, the wildfire season can quickly change.
