Across southern Australia, spring has so far been exceptionally dry.

With record warm temperatures experienced across the country in October, the bushfire seasonal outlook has been re-examined for South Australia and Tasmania.

This has resulted in an update to the Southern Australia Seasonal Bushfire Outlook. This new edition, released as Hazard Note 12, replaces the previous Outlook for these two states previously published as Hazard Note 10 in September 2015.

In Victoria, the Southern Australia Seasonal Bushfire Outlook remains as described in September’s Outlook. Most of the state is categorised as above normal fire potential. 

Similarly in New South Wales, the ACT, Western Australia and Queensland, the Southern Australia Seasonal Bushfire Outlook remains as described in September’s Outlook.
