The experimental HeatRisk is a consistent science-based approach that leverages generalized heat health science with local climatology and heat-health statistics to produce a daily value of expected heat risk for each 24-hour period in the upcoming seven day forecast period. This expected heat risk is not only based on afternoon heat, but also incorporates the effects of overnight temperatures on mitigating or augmenting the effects of daytime heat. The output is available at National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD) native resolution (2.5 km), which provides a high-resolution forecast of anticipated heat risk across the continental United States. The HeatRisk framework is a simple numeric (0-4) color-based (green/yellow/orange/red/magenta) system which is similar in approach to the Air Quality Index (AQI). This simple messaging system allows the public and decision makers to make heat-related decisions at the thresholds they determine at any location across the continental United States.
