Santa Cruz, Machico and Porto Santo are experiencing a very high risk of fire during these days.

Funchal and Ponta do Sol have a “high” risk, while the remaining Madeiran territory has a “moderate” risk.

According to the Portuguese Institute of the Sea and Atmosphere (IPMA), the forecasts will remain so at least until next Monday.

It should be noted that the meteorological index of fire hazard makes it possible to estimate the fire hazard from the state of the various fuels present in the forest soil, which is determined indirectly through observations of meteorological elements, taking into account temperature, relative humidity, the intensity of the wind and the precipitation accumulated in the last 24 hours.
