China Meteorological News reporter Ye Yihong reported that on December 23, the National Satellite Meteorological Centre launched the FY-3D / MERSI true fire color map of Australia, and a lot of fire point information in the northern, western and eastern coasts of Australia was clearly visible. In response to the recent high temperature, strong wind and fire conditions in Australia, the China Meteorological Administration has paid close attention to providing a number of weather forecast and forecast business products such as high temperature monitoring and fire monitoring in real time. This is a concrete practice for the China Meteorological Administration to develop global weather services.

Recently, continuous high temperatures and strong winds have exacerbated wildfires in many parts of Australia. On the 19th, New South Wales, the most populous state in Australia, once again declared a state of emergency due to the fire. Since December 16, the World Meteorological Center (Beijing) has continued to pay attention to extreme high temperature weather in Australia, using global observations and intelligent grid forecasts to provide Australia's daily maximum temperature monitoring and forecast information. It is expected to be from 24 to 25, except for the western region. Outside and in the south, extreme heat will also cover most of Australia.

Developing global meteorological business and providing global monitoring, global forecasting, and global services are an important step for China to become a modern meteorological power and an important content to meet the global demand for meteorological services. Since being officially recognized on May 17, 2017, the World Meteorological Center (Beijing) has continued to develop global numerical forecasting technologies, build a global Fengyun Meteorological Satellite Global Product System and a Global Seamless Forecasting Product System, and develop impact forecasting and professional meteorological product systems. It has launched a number of global monitoring and forecasting products since 2018, and released them to the World Meteorological Center (Beijing) website. It has provided services and support for global extreme weather events such as tropical cyclones in the Northwest Pacific and Indian Ocean and extreme high-temperature weather in Europe.
