Fire Weather Terms Used by the National Weather Service
- Fire Weather Watch - A watch issued when a combination of dry fuels and weather conditions (low relative humidity and strong, gusty winds) support an extreme fire danger. A Fire Weather Watch will be issued 12 to 96 hours prior to the expected onset of Red Flag Warning conditions.
- Red Flag Warning - A warning issued when critical conditions supporting an extreme fire danger are imminent or occurring. The warning highlights weather of particular importance to fire behavior and potentially extreme burning conditions or many new fires.
- Critical fire weather pattern - Patterns that can quickly increase fire danger and trigger rapid fire spread.
