It's also the earlier wind change, by about an hour, meaning peak head in the west will be lower.

That is very true doogasnow unfortunately it doesn't feel like summer here in SA or even in Victoria as i mentioned previously the pesky southerlies are sending all our heat to NSW before it even gets given a chance to affect our 2 states

Unless by some miracle Mother Nature hears our pleas for a change in weather conditions we might as well start bringing forward fire season closure dates earlier than normal

Nice cool to cold nights until Wednesday as people want camping fires make sure put it out as surface still dry grass and strong winds can start fires, no matter if cold air.

Light winds will be a saviour in Gippsland tomorrow. Parts of the Wimmera, eastern parts of Western Vic and parts of Central, however, will have a period (mid-late arvo) of quite fresh NWly.

Actually no TFB in the North East for some strange reason

That IS strange, all the more as the BOM's fire warnings seem different to that displayed on the CFA website! And yet the BOM's fire warnings for Victoria should be based on those provided by the CFA, I'm confused! crazy

Surprising - and pleasing - lack of serious fires today - a day with conditions in much of the State which could have proved problematic. Conditions in my area were very pleasant - warm but little, if any, wind.

asf - I contacted both CFA & BOM a last November, asked why the BOM didn't include days of TFB on their site.

The reply from the BOM was along these lines -

.........."Although rare, there may be times when one of these products is issued and not the other. A risk in identifying TFB status within our Fire Weather Warnings is that members of the community become accustomed to obtaining this information from the Bureau. In instances when a TFB is declared but no Fire Weather Warning is current this could lead to members of the community being unaware of the issuing of the TFB. Similarly if a TFB is issued after our Fire Weather Warning has been disseminated then our warning may be carrying incorrect information regarding TFB status." ...........

I didn't think I'd be posting on this site again
This season, but the is a watch and act
For a bushfire just north of dargo!!

I suppose the bush everywhere now is
Getting quiet dry again after little or
No rain for the past 3 weeks!!

I know around my area is dryer now than at
Any stage through summer, with this morning
Being the first drops of rain for 20 days!
And with more warmer and windy weather on
The way over the next few days were not out
Of trouble just yet!
