Fire danger indices and weather
The Great Lakes Forest Fire Compact (GLFFC) members developed the Great Lakes Surface Weather and Fire Indices site in conjunction with the University of Utah / MesoWest. This site was created to provide a comprehensive fire danger rating system, using the Canadian Forest Fire Danger Rating System (CFFDRS) and National Fire Danger Rating System (NFDRS), which will better assist the fire fighters and fire managers with fire planning on a day to day basis. The system provides both tabular and geographical displays to give the user a true picture of current and forecasted conditions using point and gridded data.
