Point-n-Click Tabular Forecast Table

ATTENTION FIRE WEATHER USERS: The default hourly Fire Weather Tabular table was recently discontinued. The regional tabular, graphical, and 7 day forecast options will remain. If this change causes significant problems, please send an email to david.tomalak@noaa.gov.

 <40K = Poor     40K - 59,999 = Fair     60K - 99,999 = Good     100K - 149,999 = Very Good     >150K = Excellent
