High fire danger this afternoon

The National Weather Service says conditions are right for dry lighting across much of Colorado today, which raises the threat of wildfire. 

A Red Flag Warning is in effect along the Continental Divide from New Mexico to Wyoming until 9 p.m.  The area includes Colorado Springs and Denver and extends all the way to Utah on the west.

A Red Flag Warning means critical fire weather conditions are either occuring now or will shortly.  Those conditions include low humidity, warm temperatures and strong winds.
