The Hot-Dry-Windy Index is the product of windspeed and vapor pressure deficit. It is a fire weather index that indicates the influence that the atmosphere has on a fire through wind, heat, and moisture. Its units are largely meant to be ignored.

The product of windspeed and vapor pressure deficit is referred to as the Hot-Dry-Windy Index (HDW) for interpreting fire weather. It is a fire weather index that indicates the influence that the atmosphere has on a fire through wind, heat, and moisture. The units of HDW do not have an established physical significance for fire processes. As a fire weather index, it should be expressed in units of hPa m s-1.
