The National Weather Service (NWS) Storm Prediction Center's Fire Weather Outlooks are intended to delineate areas of the continental U.S. where pre-existing fuel conditions, combined with forecast weather conditions, will result in a significant threat for the ignition and/or spread of wildfires. This product is designed for use in the NWS, as well as other federal, state, and local government agencies. Each outlook consists of a categorical forecast that graphically depicts fire weather risk areas across the continental United States, along with a text narrative.
