The Current Wildfire Risk provides a current look at the wildfire risk for the next 3 days across the globe. An extensive record of historical fire weather information is used to identify anomalously high fire weather conditions in daily forecasts of fire weather, which are combined with our proprietary fuel layer to produce a scored risk value. The values range from 0 - 100 representing low to extreme fire risk. The spatial scale of this data is 100 m/pixel and new forecasts are produced daily. Urban/developed areas are masked from this dataset, but the risk scores are still calculated at the urban-wildland interface.
This Current Risk layer looks at the maximum of the daily wildfire risk scores across the region for the next 1-3 days.
