Spot Forecast Instructions

Program Note - When entering a Latitude and Longitude of the fire in the online spot program, you can either specify degrees using a decimal (45.1486 for example) or in a degrees/minutes/seconds format (45 13 34 for example). For supplemental information you can reference the 7.5' USGS Quadmap, but you still need to provide the Lat/Lon.

Request Procedures

Spot weather or site specific forecasts may be obtained by Fire Control Agencies upon request to the National Weather Service in Burlington, Vermont. Spot forecasts for wildfires and other emergency situations (i.e. affecting life or property) are available 24 hours a day/7 days a week, and can be provided to any federal, state or local agency.

* The Spot requests can be made via our online spot request program, phone, or fax. *

Spot forecasts for prescribed burns are also available at any time, however only for federal agencies. Response time may vary depending on higher priority duties of the forecaster on duty. This is especially true during non routine work hours (i.e. those hours other than Monday-Friday 800 am to 400 pm), and during weekends when staffing is minimal.
