Project Overview

Five Remote Automated Weather Stations (RAWS) are operated by Vermont Dept. of Forests, Parks and Recreation to predict fire danger.Three historical stations data records are also available. Continuous monitoring of meteorological variables to use in conjunction with other FEMC weather stations give improved spatial coverage of weather conditions around Vermont.


To calculate fire danger in Vermont based on the National Fire Danger Rating System (NFDRS). Input into the NFDRS model comes from weather observations from five remote automated weather stations (RAWS) To expand the spatial coverage of meteorological measurements in Vermont.
