The web service is updated every 15 minutes. Spot Forecast are issued by WFOs in support of wildfire management, and natural resource management. These forecasts aid the land management and fire control agencies in protecting life and property during wildland fires, hazardous fuels reduction, and rehabilitation and restoration of natural resources. Spot forecasts are also issued for hazardous materials incidents and other threats to public safety. SPOT forecasts are non-routine, near term (typically not more than 48 hours) products issued at the request of the user. WFOs will provide spot forecast service upon request of any federal, state, tribal, or local official who represents the spot forecast is required to support a wildfire.</span></p><p style='margin:0 0 11 0;'><span style='font-weight:bold;'>Update Frequency:</span><span>Every 15 minutes</span></p><p><span style='font-weight:bold;'>For non-wildfire purposes, resources permitting, WFOs will provide spot forecast service under the following circumstances and conditions:</span></p><p><span>1.
