Another critical day for fire danger with very low humidity and strong winds through the afternoon in particular. We also have wind warnings in place across the southern mountains and I-25 corridor due to wind gusts in the 50 to 70 mph range later today. We'll be dry today and tonight with lighter winds returning this evening.
High Wind Warnings are in effect and we're going to have to monitor things closely through the afternoon.— Sam Schreier (@SamASchreier) March 26, 2020
We could see cross winds strong enough to easily tip a semi truck along north to south routes later today, such as I-25 between Walsenburg & Trinidad pic.twitter.com/vwlmfO0E9s

Light dustings are possible in and around the Wet Mountains Friday night. Saturday and Sunday look dry for now.
