The seasonal outlooks of fire danger conditions for March-May 2019 are now available.
This includes reports for each of the North and South Islands, as well as graphs of trends in fire danger conditions for weather stations in each region.
This month’s outlooks show the current very dry conditions continuing, with very high fire dangers persisting in many areas for at least most of March.
The Scion fire team also continues to produce weekly fire danger forecasts describing expected weather and fire danger conditions for the weekend and into the following week. These are released each Friday morning to fire managers and also posted on the Scion fire research website. They are also sent by FENZ to TVNZ for inclusion in the 1News 6pm weather each Fri. and Sat. night.
