Tracking of trends in BUI, DC, CDSR

Tracking trends in BUI, DC and CDSR

This tool provides a visual summary of current and historical trends on a daily basis for fire managers. The graphs below track the Drought Code (DC), Buildup Index (BUI) and Cumulative Daily Severity Rating (CDSR) from fire weather stations nationwide. This allows you to compare fire danger at individual stations in any given region or across the country.

The options include plotting the current year and selected individual years against the historical range of a given weather station with one station per graph, or plotting historical average or current year data for multiple stations on one graph.

The plots can be viewed online or saved as a PDF file. There is also an option for downloading all the plots grouped by region as multiple PDFs.
