Today's Fire Danger

Using current conditions and weather patterns over the last 52 days

Fire danger is calculated at Solar Noon each day
Forecast is for time of highest risk, usually mid-late afternoon


LOW FIRE DANGER IS FORECAST
Fuels do not ignite readily from small firebrands although a more intense heat source, such as lightning, may start fires in duff or punky wood. Fires in open cured grasslands may burn freely a few hours after rain, but woods fires spread slowly by creeping or smoldering, and burn in irregular fingers. There is little danger of spotting.
