The threat of fire continues to hang over the wine growers of New South Wales, with Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology forecasting “severe fire dangers” for Tuesday in a number of regions, including Greater Hunter.
Temperatures are expected to reach close to 40 degrees, with humidity falling precipitately in some areas. It is expected to be down 9% in Mudgee, a spokesman for the Rural Fire Service told the Sydney Morning Herald.
Other regions where the threat level is “severe” include Greater Sydney, Illawarra/Shoalhaven, Central Ranges and Southern Ranges.
"Hot and dry westerly winds will generate elevated fire danger over eastern and central parts of NSW on Tuesday," the Bureau of Meteorology said in a statement.
There some 51 grass and bushfires burning across the state, the Herald is reporting, with no more than half of them under control. Two fires, including one in the Clarence Valley, are of particular concern.
Wine Australia has yet to issue any updates, but Angus Barnes, executive officer of the NSW Wine Industry Association, told the Herald: “[Members] are very concerned about the fire risk in the Hunter Valley. So much so the Hunter Valley Wine and Tourism Association has postponed its annual general meeting on Tuesday.”
