Note

Fire Weather District Ratings are provided in conjunction with Fire Authorities.
District FBI (Fire Behaviour Index) is the representative peak FBI in the district. 10% of the Fire Weather District has a max FBI higher than this value.
When the table is expanded the forecast elements in the expanded rows apply to the relevant Sub Area rather than district.
Red cells indicate the value exceeds the red flag threshold. For c-Haines this is the 95th percentile climatological value, for WCDI this is a value over 40, for Minor Fuel Type Rating this indicates Extreme or higher whilst the district rating is less than Extreme.

Tuesday

Showers about the northeast, clearing during the early morning. Showers also about the west, south and central areas, easing in the afternoon. Snow falling above 800 metres about the west and south early morning. Otherwise fine. Fresh west to southwesterly winds, tending west to northwesterly during the day.
