NWS SPOT FORECASTS
PER NWS: Spot forecasts are special, non-routine forecasts prepared upon request of any federal agency, or state agency when there is some aspect of federal resources involved and/or interagency protection agreements currently exist, that needs site specific weather forecasts for:
1) controlling the spread of wildfire
2) planning and managing prescribed fires
3) other specialized forest management activities.
In the event of an emergency which threatens life and/or property, spot forecasts can also be provided to any federal, state, or local agency. Spot forecast requests for wildfires and hazardous material emergencies are considered high priority, and can be obtained at any time. Spot forecasts may be obtained for prescribed burns; however, the response may be delayed due to higher priority responsibilities of the forecaster on duty.
