This is a “Wildfire – Be Aware” message issued by the Met Office.
Further updates to this message will be circulated as more information becomes available.
A high pressure system is dominating the UK’s weather, with the potential to bring dry continental air to parts of the UK at times. This situation is likely to persist for the coming week. Historically, this weather pattern has been linked to elevated wildfire behaviour, at this time of year.
Whilst no specific wildfire warnings are in place, wildfire conditions have the potential to change markedly from day-to-day, depending on the wind direction. The wildfire community should be vigilant of an increase in the frequency of wildfires whilst the high pressure continues to affect the UK.
