Fire Danger Notice 05 of 2019 Issue date: 13 May 2019 @ 1200hrs
Condition Orange – High Fire Risk
Warning Effective From 1200hrs 13/05/2019
Effective Period Expires 1200hrs 17/05/2019
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
coming days. Fire behaviour may be moderated somewhat by increasing live growth content
in fuels and generally low ambient windspeeds during the lifespan of this notice. South
Western areas may experience significant windspeeds in excess of 20km/h at times.
