Tasmania's Fire Service is on high alert, as the temperature and fire danger continue to rise in the state's south.
A total fire ban is in place for the region until midnight.
It is the first time the service has imposed a ban since last month's destructive bushfires.
Temperatures into the 30s, low humidity and warm northerly winds are forecast for the region.
The fire service's Paul Symington says conditions are expected to worsen this afternoon.
"Temperatures are going to get up into the mid-30s today and the winds will pick up a little bit so we are asking people to be vigilant today, and if fires do start to please ring triple zero pretty quickly."
"That way we can get our crews out there," he said.
