Australia has just had its warmest August on record
Australia's 2017 bush fire season outlook
What will our fire season be like this year? The details are in our southern#bushfireoutlook, released today as part of #AFAC17.
With most of Australia experiencing a combination of above average temperatures and below average rainfall over winter, large parts of the country face above normal bushfire potential for the fire season.
