Sunny weather and high air temperature increase the risk of fire in forests. Be careful not to accidentally start a fire while walking.
Hot, tropical air flowed into Poland. The Institute of Meteorology and Water Management issued first and second degree heat warnings. The high air temperature combined with the lack of precipitation cause that in many Polish forests there is a very high and sometimes even extreme fire hazard.
Wednesday’s fire hazard
The map published by the Meteorological Modeling Center of the Institute of Meteorology and Water Management shows that on Wednesday a very high fire risk is to occur in western and central Poland.
Experts forecast extreme fire hazard for some voivodeships: warmińsko-mazurskie, Podlaskie, Lublin, Greater Poland, Kuyavian-Pomeranian and Pomeranian.
