TOTAL FIRE BAN: The Mid North, Mount Lofty Ranges and Lower South East regions are advised that Thursday January 11 will be a total fire ban.

A total fire ban has been advised for the Mid North for Thursday, with very hot, dry and windy conditions forecast. 

The Country Fire Service (CFS) advises that the fire ban will apply for 24 hours from midnight Wednesday, to Midnight Thursday. 

The Bureau of Meterology has forecast hot to very hot and dry with northeast to northwesterly winds increasing to around 30-45km/h during the morning and early afternoon. 

Possible thunderstorms can be expected in the west and near the southern coasts. 

The CFS recommends that households should implement their bushfire survival plans. 

Where fire ban districts have a forecast fire danger rating of severe, as the Mid North will on Thursday, well prepared and actively defended houses can offer safety during a fire. 

Landowners are asked to adhere to local harvest codes of practice which are available from local council.
