Arising from preceding drought conditions, a High Fire Risk remains in all areas where hazardous fuels exist. Fire Risk condition is likely to be moderated on a localised basis by scattered light rain, cooler temperatures and higher ambient humidity levels in many areas. However, an increase in fire risk values is very likely as the weekend progresses.
Highest ignition risks are likely to remain in public amenity areas in proximity to urban centres. Vigilance is also required in relation to open land at risk from illegal burning of waste and accidental ignition sources arising from agricultural activities. A protracted, on-going fire risk is likely due to desiccation and curing of fine fuels arising from recent drought conditions. These fuels can regain flammability in a short time following light rain. Extreme caution is particularly required where cured shrub fuels like gorse are concerned.
