Fire spread predictions for New Years Eve 2019


The following map displays the predicted fire spread in areas surrounding Greater Sydney for New Year’s Eve 2019.

The map indicates the communities that may come under threat from embers or fire fronts. Other areas surrounding the fire may still come under threat if conditions change or fires break containment lines, such as on the south east edge of the Grose Valley fire (Blue Mountains).

Severe fire danger is forecast for this area tomorrow and conditions will be very dangerous due to high temperatures, strong winds and low humidity. A southerly change is expected to pass across these fires tomorrow which will see erratic wind and fire behaviour.

It is likely that under these conditions, major roads including the Castlereagh Highway and Hume Highway, may be cut due to fire activity. You should consider this as part of your travel plans.
