The Portal in Action

By now in this user guide, we’ve become familiar with the Fire Weather Intelligence Portal’s interface, its point datasets and how to view recent conditions on a meteogram, the available gridded datasets, and the forecast products.

To wrap up this guide, let’s look at how the Portal can be used together with National Weather Service products before, during, and after a prescribed burn.

The webinar below, an Overview of Fire Weather Products for Controlled Burners, was hosted by the Southern Fire Exchange on December 2, 2020. In this recording, Scott Kennedy from the NWS Morehead City and Corey Davis from the NC State Climate Office describe resources available for prescribed burners and how they can be implemented using real-world examples.
