Fire Spread Prediction for Friday 10 January 2020
Severe to Extreme fire danger is forecast for parts of NSW tomorrow, including southern areas of the state.
Temperatures are forecast to be in the high 30s to low 40s with hot, dry north-westerly winds and low humidity.
A south-westerly change will impact inland fires tomorrow afternoon and evening, and a gusty southerly change will impact coastal fires from late tomorrow evening, reaching Nowra around midnight.
These conditions will make fire behaviour erratic and dangerous.
This map display the potential predicted fire spread and the communities that may come under threat from embers or fire fronts. Other surrounding areas may still come under threat if conditions change, or if fires breach containment lines.
There may potentially be new fires burning in these areas that we do not yet know about, which may threaten you without warning.
Potential spread area - if your plan is to leave or you are not prepared, you should not be in this area on Friday. Move to a large town outside this area, or if you are on the South Coast, move to an area that has already been burnt or go to the beach. Stay away from the red areas.
Potential ember attack area - You are still at risk. If your plan is to leave or you are not prepared, you should not be in this area on Friday. New fires could start and spread quickly.
If you are in the general areas identified on this map, be vigilant for new fires that may start well ahead of the fire front.
