Yosemite National Park's 'Firefall' may not appear due to drought

Tuesday 18:13 GMT

The spectacle of the setting sun in late February that transforms a waterfall in Yosemite National Park into a glowing "firefall" may not happen this year due to a worsening drought in California.

Yosemite National Park said on its website that Horsetail Fall located on the eastern edge of El Capitan is dry as of Feb. 6, and there is no precipitation in the forecast. The National Weather Service said about an inch of snow is possible on Monday and showers are possible on Tuesday, but it’s unclear if that will be enough water to flow down the falls.
