          Center (SPC) Probabilistic Day 3-8 Fire Weather

          Outlooks through January 30, 2013


The NWS is continuing to collect comments through January 30,

2013 regarding six Fire Weather Outlook graphics for the

Conterminous United States (CONUS).  These graphics are posted on

the SPC Web site on an experimental basis.


These graphics were previously available for comment:


Feedback from the previous experimental period indicated that the

combined 3-8 day forecast graphic was difficult to interpret. As

an improvement, the SPC is now providing six individual daily web

graphics (Day 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8) of the two Probabilistic Fire

Weather Outlooks:


  1) Probability of Dry Thunderstorms Fire Weather Outlook

  2) Probability of Strong Winds, Low RH, and Warm Temperatures

     Fire Weather Outlook


These graphics are available on the SPC’s Day 3-8 Fire Weather

Forecast web page:


Feedback and comments concerning these experimental graphics are

welcome through January 30, 2013, via a link on the web page or
