RED FLAG WARNING / FIRE WEATHER WATCH!            May 26, 2015       

Predictive Services - Fuels / Fire Danger

Predictive Services logo

Fuels and Fire Behavior Advisory highlights continuing Red Flag conditions and extremely dry fine fuels across the eastern and central Interior, as well as the Copper River basin. FFMC values in excess of 95 over widespread areas represent historic conditions. Very warm and very dry conditions, expected to continue for the forseeable future, will dry fuels deeper into the duff layers. And with temperatures above 80 degrees, even early season boreal fuels are susceptible to crown fire with favorable winds and slope conditions. South Central fuels are drying out as precipitation pattern abates. Basins away from the coast will be the first to dry. The panhandle is taking lightning that may find receptive fuels. Unusually dry conditions in slash areas raise concerns for some intense fires. Overall, onshore breezes keep conditions in many areas a little cooler and more humid, keeping ignition potential below critical levels.
