Warm, dry weather sparks extreme fire danger for most of Colorado

High fire danger - 04/11/18

The National Weather Service in Tucson has issued a "red flag warning' - indicative of "critical fire weather conditions" - until 9 p.m. and for Friday from 10 a.m.to 7 p.m". A combination of strong winds, low relative humidity, and warm temperatures can contribute to extreme fire behavior. Take caution to still avoid outdoor burning.

With potentially record high temperatures on the way and windy conditions across the state, the fire danger will be a major concern the next few days across Colorado and could last well into the summer.

Outdoor burning is not recommended at this time.

Strong southwest wind gusts in the 35-45 miles per hour range combined with low relative humidity values will create an enhanced wildfire risk Thursday afternoon and Friday.

Locally in Seminole on Thursday, patchy blowing dust is anticipated after 1 p.m, otherwise, local residents can anticipate sunny skies with a high near 92.

Red flag warnings have been issued for the areas through Thursday evening.

Accustomed to wildfires during the fall and spring fire seasons, Chief John Dyehouse of Broadhead Fire Department in Rockcastle County said the conditions can quickly turn small burnings into out-of-control fires. Lows drop to the 30s and 40s under mostly clear skies. We have chances for mountain snow Thursday and Friday, along with a slight chance for some rain/snow in the lower elevations Friday.
