Fire Danger Forecast

The Fire Danger Project was developed as a joint project involving USGS EROS and collaborators from the USDA Forest Service. This project combines forecast weather data and satellite observations to develop several products depicting the risk for large fire activity across the conterminous United States. Forecast products are produced up to seven days in advance and are updated daily.
