NDFD Fire Danger Forecasts

Fire danger forecasts from the National Digital Forecast Database will be unavailable for the next 24 hours as we update our processing to incorporate the newly-released 2.5km CONUS data.  All operations should be restored by COB on Friday, 29 August 2014.

 

 
NDFD Fire Danger Point Forecast Tool

We've developed a simple, point forecast interface that produces seven day fire danger forecasts from the National Digital Forecast Database.  Check it out here: NDFD Point Forecast Tool

 
New Web Map Server

WFAS has a new web map server for NDVI-based greenness data.  You can find it here: http://maps.wfas.net/

In this new interface, you can pan, zoom and plot greenness data.  We'll be expanding the scope of this interface in the future, so keep checking.

 
Google Earth Map Data

WFAS is now offering point-based map data in a Google Earth compatible format.  The files are updated daily and include current weather, fire danger and fuel moisture observations as well as forecast weather conditions when available. More WFAS products will be made available in this format in the future, so keep checking back.

NOTE:  The WFAS map data KML now includes links to historical weather data for each operational weather station.  Just follow the links at the bottom of the marker page.

The daily rain/dry lightning map has been added to Google Earth products.   The KMZ link is in the Current Condition box under Experimental Products (Dry Lightning). The map date is found in the folder description for the product.  (December 2010)
