Red flag warning for parts of southern Colorado

The risk of wildfires starting and spreading in southern Colorado is high because of dry, warm weather and expected wind gusts.

A red flag warning has been posted for the San Luis Valley and Huerfano and Las Animas counties from noon Monday through 7 p.m.

The National Weather Service says the fire danger is expected to increase across much of eastern Colorado on Tuesday because of strong winds expected to develop as a storm system moves out. Fort Collins, Greeley, Colorado Springs and Pueblo are in the warning area but Denver isn’t.
