    28 NOV. 2023 · In this episode, Suz Bremner and Phil Duncan chat with FENZ wildfire manager Tim Mitchell as the country moves from an unsettled November to a drier pattern emerging through December. While there’s currently a low fire risk and NZ generally falls on the edge of El Niño and La Niña events, Phil explains why long range advice plays a key role in changing weather patterns. These weather pattern changes also have the potential to have more significant hot, dry windy conditions as the season progresses.
