Red flag Warnings continue for the Western Slope Tuesday and very likely for the rest of this week.
Temperatures are hot, conditions are dry and the wind continues to blow across the region. Smoke has also been visible (in on the southwest flow) from wildfires in New Mexico and Arizona. Rain will stay out of the forecast and the very dry conditions will provide too many opportunities to help spread any fires that ignite. Be fire weather aware. Please be extra cautious with anything that could spark or ignite. The ridge of high pressure will strengthen over the weekend causing high temperatures to climb to near record breaking levels in the low 100s.
