Weather is a key component affecting wildfire risk. Scientists endeavour to understand climatic factors (such as wind, temperature, relative humidity and rainfall) to provide fire managers with better fire risk information. Research into climate change and future fire risk has shown that fire danger is likely to increase, particularly in the eastern areas of New Zealand.
