Climate Portal

Definition: The prevalent or characteristic meteorological conditions of any place or region, and their extremes.
(National Wildfire Coordinating Group/Fire Research And Management Exchange System)

Fire climate, which may be thought of as the synthesis of daily fire weather over a long period of time, is a dominant factor in fire-control planning. In a broad sense, climate is the major factor in determining the amount and kind of vegetation growing in an area, and this vegetation makes up the fuels available for wildland fires.
