Week variations forest fires activity of region with a continental climate (Yakutia) are
considered. In a week cycle of variations of a total area of forest fires there are two maxima - at the
middle and a weekend. Especially distinctly they it is traced in the beginning and the end of a firedangerous
season (June, September). Presumably the maximum in the middle of week with a greater
degree of probability is caused by the natural factor - thunder-storms. In favour of this assumption
speaks presence of a maximum of the storm activity falling these days of week, and also that fact,
that in September when thunderstorms in territory of Yakutia practically are not observed, the
maximum forest fires activity in the middle of week is inexpressive or is absent. The maximum in a
weekend is caused by the anthropogenous factor.
