Weather Forecast Tools

The National Weather Service  has very good weather forecasting tools available for us. We encourage each property owner expecting to burn on his or her place to monitor the spot forecast for the property to coordinate with the association on a date for a burn. 

Here are links to a few key locations.  You can pick one of these that is reasonably close to you and zoom on the map or drag it around until your find your spot, click on it, and then you have the spot forecast for your place.  You can also get there by entering your property address in the search box on the main page.  To get to the main page from the hourly weather chart, go to the bottom of the page and click on 7-Day Forecast.

If you prefer to locate your own spot directly, download the Word document attached below by clicking on the down-pointing arrow on the bottom right of this page.

For those of you who have Android smart phones you can get an app from the Play Store (and maybe other places) called NOAA Weather by N Studio.   There are two versions, one free and one $.99.  The $.99 version is the one with the fire weather features.  To access the fire weather option when you have the app installed and active, long press the Menu key (lower left of your screen)  and select Hourly Fire Forecast.
