Dry Lightning Potential Index
Data Mining Tool
Outreach / Education
The Dry Lightning Potential Index (DLPI) is a graphical product produced by forecasters at WFO Las Vegas (VEF) using GFE/IFPS. Ratings of Dry Lightning potential (numbered from 0 through 6) for the next three days (today, tomorrow and the next day) are calculated using forecasts of boundary layer relative humidity and static stability. The DLPI is intended to be used as general guidance, primarily for planning purposes. The DLPI is intended as a seasonal product, issued from June through October, when active wildfires are most likely to occur in our forecast area.
