Global to regional fire weather forecasts are updated monthly by the ECPC. Background and methodology of  the forecasts are described in detail by J.Roads et al. 1997: Int. Forest Fire News No.17.

The GFMC displays the global ECPC Fire Weather Forecast. This example allows a quicklook and usually provides a monthly total forecast.
