In the weeks following Superstorm Sandy, the National Weather Service said it saw a “high number” of “hot spots” in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.
Those are areas where high winds and low humidity have made the fires difficult to control, and they can become “extremely dangerous.”
On Wednesday, the agency warned that the number of “extreme fire events” would rise to a record high of 1,664.
But while the number might be on the rise, the number is actually down from what it was a year ago, and the number isn’t rising as fast as it did during the superstorm.
The number of severe fire events has actually declined since the end of last year, according to the NWS.
In fact, it’s actually been falling since the start of this year.
In March, there were 1,056 severe fire episodes.
The NWS said that was the lowest number since it began keeping track in 2017.
As for the number that has been on the increase, it rose by 4.2 percent from March 1 to March 31.
That’s up from a 1.8 percent increase in March 2017, and it’s up even more from a 2.6 percent increase last month.
So while the increase in severe fire incidents might be increasing, the increase is still less than the 4.3 percent the NFSB recorded in December, when it reported that the severe fire episode number had reached a record-high of 1.6 million.
The numbers for April and May also are down.
The latest NWS data shows that the total number of hot spots increased by 5.2 million acres and there were 2,871 severe fires in those two months.
It also said that there were 3,071 severe fire days in April and 5,838 severe fires during May.
These figures don’t include the number or types of severe fires that have been reported since May.
The weather bureau also reported that a new record hot spot was reported in the central part of the state of Vermont.
The state recorded 2,904 severe fires and 784 hot spots between December 30 and January 1.
This is a major drop from the record of 5,081 hot spots recorded in the same period in 2017, according the Nws.
The record hot spots total is also down from the 1,852 recorded in February, when the weather bureau said it had seen an increase in extreme fire events.
That increase, however, is not as dramatic as the increase from March to April.
So far this year, there have been about 1,600 more severe fire fires, according a NWS report.
It doesn’t mean the hot spots are growing in strength, however.
The hot spots still remain on the scale of a very small fraction of all the fires.
The amount of fire that’s in a particular hot spot is not enough to cause the whole fire to burn, said Chris Buehner, a fire expert with the National Center for Atmospheric Research.
Buehler, a former NWS climate expert, said the NHC’s record is not a good measure of the strength of a fire, because it’s based on the number and type of fires rather than how big or small the fire is.
The warmer the day, the more likely that a fire will be a hot spot.
But he said the hotter the day the greater the chance that a wildfire will become a hot sprawl of hot water, which could lead to a firestorm.
In that scenario, the NSC says the risk of an extreme fire event is very low.
A lot of fires will burn over short distances and then quickly dissipate into the surrounding forest.
That is not what we’re seeing in these hot spots.
“The hot spot may have become a hotspot for some time,” said Bueher, who is now a professor at Rutgers University.
“We need to keep the number down.”
Buehrer added that the NHS report doesn’t account for some hot spots that may have remained active after the weather stations recorded them.
For example, the hottest hot spot on record was in the northwest corner of the U.S. between Chicago and Minneapolis, but the weather station there did not report that fire.
Bueshner said he doesn’t think there are any specific rules in place for hot spots and that the weather agencies are simply trying to give an indication of the type of fire there are in the region.
The data from the NSE, however has been extremely helpful in mapping the hot spot in New Jersey, where there are still a number of fires burning and a large amount of water in the area.
According to the weather agency, there are 6,600 hot spots in New Brunswick, N.J., and 2,400 in Jersey City, N,J.
The total number in New Mexico is 2,800 and the total in Oklahoma is 1,200.
