A status Orange – High Fire Risk warning is currently in operation.
Arising from current Easterly high pressure weather conditions, forecast high temperatures and low relative humidity levels, a High Fire Risk exists in all areas where hazardous fuels such as gorse, heather, dried grasses and other dead vegetation exist.
Fire risk is likely to be highest in westernmost areas with lowest expected humidity levels in the coming days. Fire behaviour may be moderated somewhat by increasing live growth content in fuels and generally low ambient winds-seeds during the lifespan of this notice.
South Western areas may experience significant windspeed in excess of 20km/h at times.
Warning Effective from: 13/05/2019 12:00 to 17/05/2019 12:00.
