Background: The NC State Climate Office and the NC Forest Service worked together to develop a webbased
monitoring tool to show past, current, and forecast weather and fire risk information across North
Carolina, providing guidance for prescribed fire practitioners and wildfire fighters. It delivers timely
information 24/7. This key intelligence facilitates the assessment of local burning conditions and the ability
to understand how the atmosphere will disperse wildland smoke. For prescribed burners and wildfire
suppression personnel, it supports one-stop shopping and informed decision making. The Fire Weather
Intelligence Portal is accessible at http://climate.ncsu.edu/fwip/
