Dry winds blowing down from the western mountains and buffeting dry grass along Colorado’s Front Range raised fire risks Thursday, prompting the National Weather Service to issue a “red flag” warning.
Gusts could reach speeds up to 65 miles per hour, decreasing Thursday afternoon, weather service forecasters said. Decreasing humidity will increase risks, according to the weather service.
This fire risk warning, effective through 5 p.m. Thursday night, covers Denver. Weather service forecasters advised avoiding outdoor fires and activities that could generate sparks.
Light snow was expected in mountain areas Thursday morning, less than 2 inches. And around metro Denver, temperatures were expected to reach up to 51 degrees under mostly sunny skies.
