| Welcome to the Weather
Activity Planner. Please enter the range of weather parameters
required for your activity. Then, either click the approximate
location on the map below, or enter the specific latitude and
longitude and hit submit. This will query the forecast grids to find
when your weather requirements will be met at the nearest grid point
over the next 7 days. Public comments and
suggestions are encouraged.
This application generates products from a digital forecast data base.
It is intended to allow a user to define and produce a forecast for
general planning purposes only. As any weather or hydrologic event
evolves, updated forecasts and warnings are issued by the NWS.
Customers are urged to obtain the latest official forecast information
prior to engaging in any weather sensitive activity, and to monitor
forecasts for updates during such activities.
The Weather Activity Planner is NOT meant to replace a spot
forecast request. Weather Activity Planner surface winds are a
gridded representation of projected, local surface winds at a 5km or
2.5km resolution. The surface winds returned do NOT account for fuel
type, sheltering or slope aspect. Users can select either surface wind
speeds or 20 foot winds (if the 20 foot wind grid is available). If
precise wind forecasts are needed, please submit a spot forecast
request to your servicing Weather Forecast Office.
