KANSAS Forecasted Weather Indices: 04/21/2018

SIG:  KIRWIN No observations found that meets these parameters; 

 

SIG:  POTAWATO No observations found that meets these parameters; 

 

SIG:  STAFFORD No observations found that meets these parameters; 

 

SIG:  STLINE NR

SIG:  TALLGRAS No observations found that meets these parameters; 

 

Energy Release Component:  A number related to the available energy (Btu/square foot) within the flaming front at the head of a fire. The significance of ERC values is not obvious to the field user, unless he/she is able to compare the current ERC value against the history of fire weather, as the numbers vary from weather station to weather station. Pocket Cards and Seasonal Fire Danger demonstrate best the significance of the numbers.  ERC’s work best in the Timber fuel models (including Pinion-Juniper) and in indicating the fuel moisture content throughout the fire season.   Burning IndexA number related to how hard the fire is to contain. The Burning Index value is flame length X 10.  To get the flame length, just divide the BI by 10.

Adjective Rating:  Fire danger expressed as a rating value that can be used for public information and fire prevention signing (Smokey Bear Signs that display the Fire Danger Ratings).  Ranges are Low, Moderate, High, Very High, and Extreme.  Fire Danger Map

NOTICE:  The National Fire Danger Rating System is a model that, based on particular parameters, gives a GENERAL picture of the Fire Danger.  It is not specific to any one fire.  The actual fire may demonstrate behavior that is greater than the model prediction.  Always expect the actual fire to exemplify fire behavior not typical of the model.
