All fires in the Deptford Cluster appear to be contained. Great effort! Small fires further into the Alps may be problematic.

the 18z GFS run doesn't look crash hot on wednesday, pushes back the cool change about 6 hours (midnight instead of mid-day). Still a long way out though

A lot of the fires that are up in those eastern
Rangers are starting to grow in size, which will
Probably only make it harder to slow them down

You're right Dooga. Logansi will have better intel but those fires around Crooked River are in difficult country and once they get a bit of size will be problematic. Much relieved here in Sarsfield re the Deptford Cluster! (Hoping it stays that way!)

Watch & act up for the Buller area.

From what I can see on the models
And bom forecast, there is very minimal
Rain out of this system coming through
Tommoz. Things are so dry out there now, itís
Going to be very difficult imo to round up these
Going fires through the alps without decent
Rain. Looks like this change is only brief
As we head back into mid/high 30ís next week

I've been in Adelaide these last few days (where i'll be moving soon for work) so haven't had a lot of time to get info on these fires atm. However I can say that the response has been massive, around 26 Aircraft have been working on these fires, including the large air tankers and the night time aircraft which are being used on the Mt Buller fire.

There is also a significant number of fires over the boarder in NSW.

Could be a massive spike day/s coming next Thursday into Friday, looking like 40s almost state wide and strong to very strong winds on the change.
