... Red flag warning remains in effect from 11 am this morning to
7 PM MST this evening for wind and low relative humidity for the
southern Front Range foothills and adjacent plains east and
northeast through Boulder and Fort Collins...

* affected area... fire weather zone 216.

* Timing... this afternoon into early evening.

* Winds... west 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 50 mph.

* Relative humidity... as low as 10 percent.

* Impacts... gusty, shifting winds and low relative humidity
during the afternoon will produce conditions favorable for
fire starts and rapid growth.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A red flag warning means that critical fire weather conditions
are either occurring now... .or will shortly. A combination of
strong winds... low relative humidity... and warm temperatures can
contribute to extreme fire behavior.
