Accessing WIMS

wet flag
WET FLAG
  • Flag in the observation that notes the fuels are wet
  • The State of the Weather will set the Wet Flag to Y or N
  • The Wet Flag can be forced to Y even if the State of the Weather sets Wet Flag to N
  • Setting the WF to Y will drive up the 1000hr and therefore effect live fuel moistures
