DENVER (AP) - A heat wave is continuing across Colorado that is expected to send temperatures soaring over 100 degrees in many places statewide, creating a critical fire danger.
Meteorologist Kyle Fredin said Monday the thermometer is expected to exceed 100 degrees on the eastern plains, and hit 101 in Grand Junction.
A red flag warning for high fire danger is in effect across the state after a number of wildfires broke out. The weather service called the situation critical.
