Pyrocumulus Time-Lapse of the Green Wattle Fire 4th January 2020 during record heat wave conditions

The Green Wattle Fire burned through thousands of hectares of land. Spectacular national parks and wilderness went up in flames! The pyrocumulus timelapse filmed here is the of the Green Wattle Fire.  The bush fire had been going for many weeks but it consequently flared up once more. The whole region was devastated. Pyrocumulus clouds developed when strong fire plumes rise. As smoke rises it finally cools to a temperature that allows the smoke particles to condense into cloud.

Coincidentally, Penrith recorded a temperature of 48.9C  -  a greater Sydney record set in 1939! Incredibly, it was so hot you could fry an egg!
