Before, During, and After Flooding--What you should know.



North Dakota Fire Danger Map

The ND FDI (http://www.crh.noaa.gov/bis/?n=fire_weather_public) is issued daily by the National Weather Service (NWS) during fire season; typically from April 1 to October 31, by 6:00 am CDT (text and map form) and provides an indication of rural fire potential for grasslands, including its ability to spread. The Fire Danger Index may be updated during the day as weather conditions warrant.

Although not very often, there are times when weather conditions that develop during the day result in a change to the FDI that is significantly different (change by one or more categories) than what was issued at 6:00 am at which time the NWS will update the FDI. These updates are more likely to occur in early spring and fall where slight changes in temperature, relative humidity and/or wind speed have a larger impact to the fire danger. CHECK FOR UPDATES BEFORE YOU BURN.
