The map of McArthur Forest Fire Danger Index is generated from meteorological data every 20 minutes. Please check the timestamp on the image to make sure it's current and the calculation hasn't crashed.

Data is sourced from the Australian Bureau of Meteorology. KBDI and Drought Factor components are calculated daily based on recent rainfall and temperature.

These maps represent the output from a statistical model, and are therefore subject to variation and inaccuracies. They should be used only as a guide to the spatial pattern and dynamics of fire danger across Australia. Visit your local state fire agency website for up-to-date fire information.
