Public Information Statement

Statement as of 12:44 PM EDT on September 30, 2016

effective October 17, 2016, the current National Weather Service
California fire weather web site,
http://www.Wrh.NOAA.Gov/firewx/cafw/ will be replaced with an
updated and enhanced version.

The new Page will include enhancements such as: detailed hazards of
red flag warnings and fire weather watches colored on the map eccda,
NWS fire zones and County boundaries on zoomable map link to new
National spot forecast Page, which GOES operational Oct. 17, 2016
revised menu links the detailed hazards of red flag warnings and
fire weather watches on the map is different than our current
watch/warning map. The detailed hazard map will highlight only the
portion of the NWS fire weather zone, that is actually included in
the red flag warning or a Fire Weather Watch. If the watch or
warning is valid for the entire fire weather zone, it will highlight
the entire zone. The (emergency command center dispatch area)
eccda, NWS fire weather zones, and County boundaries are now
clickable layers that can be viewed individually or at the same time
on the front map. The forecasts for these are now a one click
option directly from the map, and defaults to the last boundary
chosen. For example: when you click on the map it will bring up the
forecast for eccdas if that's the only boundary highlighted. If you
then chose to add the fire weather zones on top of the eccda
boundaries, T hen click somewhere on the map, the fire weather zone
forecast will pop up.

A preview of the new website is available at:
