The Predictive Services section of the National Interagency Fire Center has issued their wildfire outlook for the next several months. It looks to be pretty quiet except for northern California and south Texas.
Dick just pointed out to us a nifty web site where you can very easily, by mousing-over links, see medium to long range weather outlooks. It is the www.cpc.noaa.gov site, and includes these weather forecast products:
- Outlooks for temperature and precipitation, for 6-10 days, 8-14 days, one month, and three months.
- “Hazards assessment” for temperature/wind, precipitation, and soil/wildfire.
- Drought monitor and drought outlook
This is a very handy, fast, one-page source.
The predictive services section at the National Interagency Coordination Center at Boise released the fire potential outlooks for the next several months.
Here is the fire potential for July 28 through August 3, as forecast by the USDA Forest Service Remote Sensing Applications Center.
The National Interagency Fire Center has issued a wildland fire outlook for July through October, 2009. If their prediction is accurate (and it was fairly close last month) July will be pretty quiet, fire-wise, except for northwestern California, northern Washington, and the Texas and Louisiana coastal areas.
