Fire Danger Rating
    Fire Danger is based on weather and fuel conditions. The National Fire Danger Rating System (NFDRS) was developed to rate fire danger as low, moderate, high, very high or extreme.

Fire Weather Observations
    The fire weather observing network reports once a day at 2 pm Local Standard Time. Wind speed observations are 10 minute averages.

Haines Index
    The Haines Index is also called the Lower Atmosphere Stability Index. Regions of high Haines Index have greater potential for large fire growth. The index is calculated by combining a moisture term with a stability term. Larger values are associated with dry, less stable environments.
