Strong winds with high fire danger

Strong winds with high fire danger

A Red Flag Warning, High Wind Warning, High Wind Watch and Wind Advisory are in effect.

Red Flag Warnings can change throughout the day as the National Weather Service offices around the country update and revise their forecasts.

"A combination of low relative humidity, strong wind gusts and dry fuels will result in critical fire weather conditions across Colorado", the NWS said. Winds will still be strong on Wednesday, but nothing like Tuesday.

On Tuesday evening, it is anticipated to be mostly clear, with a low around 47. Thursday, ahead of our next area of low pressure, winds will gust again to the 30 and 40 miles per hour range, elevating fire danger.

Pueblo County sheriff's deputies and other officers went door to door to warn residents to get out, and gusty winds were expected to continue into the night.

A Red Flag Warning means that critical fire weather conditions are either occurring now or will shortly.

The winds are anticipated to taper off on Wednesday, as highs reach near 75-degrees.

According to models, areas of patchy dust is anticipated after 1 p.m. Tuesday, with daytime highs near 86-degrees. That system arrives on Friday bringing gusty winds and the possibility of some really good moisture.
