PG&E Launches New Weather Webpage

Posted on August 30, 2019


Does PG&E have your contact info?

In preparation for the threat of wildfire, PG&E has launched a robust weather webpage to better predict when a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) is likely to occur. The PSPS Potential Forecast will provide an instantaneous sense of what’s going on and what’s ahead. The forecast encompasses nine geographic regions of PG&E’s service area (we’re in Region 3) and four levels of PSPS potential: Not Expected, Elevated, PSPS Watch, and PSPS Warning. The map, which is part of the forecast visualization, shows whether the National Weather Service has called a Red Flag Warning, and if so, where at. The forecast also offers access to the thousands of weather stations and dozens of high-definition cameras that are in use by PG&E to monitor the weather. For information about fire conditions in California, visit CALFIRE’s website. For more information about the PG&E’s Community Wildfire Safety Program, including links to update your contact information, resources for Public Safety Power Shutoffs, and a schedule of upcoming regional open houses and webinars, visit PG&E’s website at www.pge.com/wildfiresafety.
