Elements of the National Weather Service Fire Weather Forecast

Presented by: Tallgrass Prairie and Oak Savanna Fire Science Consortium, Lake States Fire Science Consortium
Speaker: Casey Sullivan, National Weather Service, Chicago/Romeoville

Casey Sullivan will provide an overview of the National Weather Service fire weather forecast program and discuss elements of the fire weather forecast available to any fire practitioner. The hourly weather graph and definitions of surface winds will be emphasized. If you missed Casey's presentation at the 2014 symposium of the Illinois Prescribed Fire Council, this is a great opportunity to log on and see what you missed. We estimate 10-15 minutes will be available for questions from the audience.
