SMHI warns: high risk of grass fires in the easter holidays

– It is fjolårsgräset that remains and is very flammable, " says Henry Reimer, a meteorologist at SMHI.

Högtycket located all over Sweden, offers the dry and sunny weather this easter with temperatures that can reach up to 20-graderstrecket. At the same time it is very dry in the forest and land, which means that the fire danger is great.

a warning for grass fires in southern and central Sweden and Gävleborg county. The exceptions are sweden, Skåne and Halland where there is danger of a forest fire. The lack of rainfall makes the soil in southern Sweden is becoming increasingly drier, and the risk of fires in forest and land is increasing.

– It is very dry and hot so there is a big risk of grass fires on snow-free areas, but in Skåne and Halland have new grass started to grow up, so it is not as much risk. Instead, increases skogsbrandsrisken for the trees are dry, " says Henry Reimer.

the High pressure will weaken around the easter Sunday, but the dry weather continues for another week. Only in the north of sweden it can get any local shower of rain.

In some counties has been issued eldningsförbud from holy Thursday, for example, in the whole of Kronoberg and Skåne county. In Jönköping county is extreme high risk of grass and wildfires.

" It is because of the risk of wildfire. We have had relatively many such in the last few days, " says Gunnar Karlsson, räddningstjänsthandläggare in Kronoberg, to Expressen.

surely that pick up the grill, but because of the fire risk prompted the public to be extra careful and especially if you going to start a fire in nature. If it blows, you should completely refrain from firing because a gust can get a grass fire that quickly spread.

to get more information about what applies when firing in the nature you can check with their municipality of residence or the county board.
