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
