Visual purposes intended for general public information only and should not be relied on as accurate for a specific location due to variability in local site and weather conditions. Information is updated as soon as is practicable on a daily basis. Where discrepancies exist between this map and the source information located at Fire Danger Rating web page, the source information shall take precedence. For regulated forest operations, the danger class value must be derived from weather data representative of the site on which operations are being conducted. Where discrepancies exist between the colour display on the weather maps and the numerical values posted for the weather stations, the posted numerical values shall take precedence for the purpose of implementing complying with the Wildfire Regulation.
Danger rating is updated daily between April and November.
