Weather is one of the dominant factors responsible for uncontrollable spread of mass fires in both urban and rural areas. Identification of the weather types causing critical burning conditions in 14 contiguous regions of the United States was the subject of the previous report.

Weather Phenomena for Critical Fire Conditions. Cold fronts, Foehn winds, Thunderstorms, Dust devils, Firewhirls. Cold Fronts. a rapidly moving cold air mass runs into a slowly moving warm air mass leads to strong wind speeds; moderate to strong southwesterly winds; air mass in front is warm causing increase in fire behavior; high or low humidities; wind abrupt shift from southwest to northwest; 15 - 30 mph.

Critical fire weather pattern - Patterns that can quickly increase fire danger and trigger rapid fire spread. Crown fires - Fires which spread through the tops of trees or any other aerial fuels. Crowning - When fires move rapidly from surface fuels to aerial fuels and then spread as crown fires.

Both of these conditions enhanced critical fire weather conditions overnight. This large-scale pattern went on to sustain Santa Ana-driven fires late Thursday into early Friday across Southern Author: Jonathan Belles. Asistencia con la inscripción y respuestas a preguntas frecuentes.

the fire community understood this critical fire weather pattern (lightning followed by high winds and low relative humidity) as far back as the s when Schroeder et al. () conducted research on synoptic weather patterns across the Intermountain West.

Since then, further research is. The first publication concerning critical fire weather patterns was “Synoptic Weather Types Associated with Critical Fire Weather” by Schroeder et al.

This study covered the lower 48 states and concluded that “periods of critical fire weather are associated with relatively few weather patterns.”File Size: 1MB.

Critical fire weather patterns typically focus on synoptic conditions which produce strong winds, low relative humidities, and above normal temperatures (Shroeder et. al). Important as these conditions are in creating an environment conducive to increased fire behavior and rapid fire spread, without a fire, dry, windy, and anomalously warm conditions generally pose little.

Fire burning with a low flame and spreading slowly. Running fire Behavior of a fire spreading rapidly with a well defined head. Spotting Behavior of a fire producing sparks or embers that are carried by the wind and which start new fires beyond the zone of direct ignition by the main fire.
