A catastrophic fire danger is forecast for Eucla today and extreme fire danger is forecast for the Exmouth Gulf Coast.
The Department of Fire and Emergency Services advises that the catastrophic warning applies to the worst conditions for a bush or grass fire.
If a fire starts and takes hold it will be extremely difficult to control and will take significant firefighting resources and cooler conditions to bring under control.
A deep trough which will will lie from the north-west to the south-east corner of WA today brings hot and windy conditions near the trough, particularly in the Eucla.
Severe fire danger is forecast for the West Pilbara Coast, Gascoyne Coast, Goldfields and South Interior.
For people in severe or extreme fire danger areas, DFES advises that if a fire starts and takes hold it will be unpredictable, move very fast and be difficult for firefighters to bring under control.
