The weather behind Black Saturday - from the Clickview Digital Library

The Weather Channel's meteorological experts, survivors, fire scientists and CFA's Chief Officer reveal in detail how the weather created a perfect storm of destruction where extreme temperatures melted metal and fireballs of wind raced at over 120 kilometres per hour.  In the months and days leading up to Black Saturday, the Weather Channel was monitoring a disaster in the making. Senior Meteorologist Dick Whitaker recognised the signs; long drought, a little rain, growing fuel, low humidity and hot desert winds.
