Description :
Weather conditions during a wildfire have an important role in the determination of the rate of spread of the fire. This depends mainly on the availability of dry matter and the wind speed. Two factors that reach their optimum at the end of the summer in September and October during Sharav episodes. The distribution of easterly wind spelts associated with Sharav events is considered.
