For the first real time this season we will possibly see some dangerous fire conditions coming into next week. Low Humidity and High Temps with possible gusty winds to affect South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales. Gusty winds more likely just ahead of the cool change to impact mid-next week. Just checked the grassland curing maps from same time last year and we are a lot drier and that does not look to good heading into a complex set up of VERY HOT weather with a possible gusty cool change later that week. All eyes I can safley say will be on fire apps and VicEmergency website that is for sure.

Couple of fires around today including a few starts up in the high country from lightning - also are large fire involving tires at Strathmerton.

TFB for Mallee Tommorrow

Also as a type this just had a make tankers 20 in CURRAN RD TOWAN - North of Swan Hill - 300 acre wheat crop fire. Quiet surprising considering the time but still around 30 up there

Edit now make tankers 30 - 400 acres going strong

There is a grassfire at YARRABY ROAD, NYAH WEST that is not yet under control

Fire now contained - 900-1000 acres burnt - Crews will be blacking out all night. Fire held at Chinkapook-Nyah West Road, conditions have improved. Going to need a lot of work to keep it from flaring up tomorrow. Sounds like it was caused by a header like most fires up that way.
