Weather Activity Planner Forecast Banner 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.
