This blog message contains a list of sites, which carry the pwsFWI Fire Weather Index. Please look here for more information, or look here for it’s distribution location on the Cumulus support forum. Look here for its scientific background. Check out the map as well for stations carrying CumulusUtils.
This message will be updated with new sites when I hear from siteowners they installed CumulusUtils and run a pwsFWI page. It will act as a library for the participating sites. Please, do not hesitate to ask questions or install the tool yourself. Today, with increasing temperatures everywhere, even the polar circle area has become a Fire Risk Area. Distributed tools on personal weather stations may play a significant role in this for warning and analysis. During its trials PwsFWI has shown it can be useful and gives correct warning.
