Fire Weather Alert System Prototype
If you want to be notified of a specific type of weather event in your area, consider subscribing to a new service developed by the Firelab in Missoula, MT. Go to https://weather.firelab.org/fwas/ or just type "fire weather alert system" into your browser. Set your location and thresholds for weather variables in a specific radius from your location. You can also set the alert to expire in an amount of time up to seven days. For example, if you want to know if the RH drops below 22%, you can set it and wait for an alert by email or text. If you won't be in cell coverage, but still want the alert, you can ask your dispatch to configure the alert and warn you if it's activated. It's a pretty simple interface, but the developers would be interested in hearing from you if you use it!
