This visualization shows the daily one-day forecast of the Fire Weather Index (FWI), a system for tracking how weather influences the chance of a wildfire starting and spreading. Fire Weather categories are similar to those for the Global Wildfire Information System. More information can be found at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, where the data are produced using weather data from the NASA Global Modeling and Assimilation Office. This visualization has been prepared for use within the Earth Information Center (EIC), and is not meant for operational use.
