The Division of Forestry has a web site available that shows moisture concentrations, wind speeds, and all of the weather information that a human could stand. Has anybody used this tool, and if so, what is the website name?
Thanks in advance,

Not for sure if this is the one you have in mind. This one is from the Forest Service..Might check: http://www.fs.fed.us/land/wfas/map_list.htm
and look at the link: Daily Observations
there are also links to Maps & Map Archives, as well as, other links:
Daily Observations, Fire Danger,Daily Forecast, Experimental Products Status and Updates NFDR Fuel Model Map.
Hope it's the one you were thinking of...
Have found the information useful at different times.

Lately i've been cruising the noaa.gov website. Pretty much more info than one could shake a stick at. It ought to keep you busy.
As for using it, our agency produces most of the weather info we need in-house. For predictions, we utilize the nws fire wx forecast. Works pretty well, unless you are trying to use predictions that go out past 72-96 hr.
