A brush fire broke out yesterday in Colorado Springs, CO after a very dry and windy day. Unfortunately, those fire concerns look to be increasing today. https://twitter.com/WeatherNation/status/970271592818208768 With the fire concerns again today, Red Flag Warnings and Fire Weather Watches are in place for many locations across the Four Corners and Southern Plains. These watches are warnings are also in affects for many locations that are going through severe to extreme droughts. These means there are plenty of dry fuels in place for a fire to work with. Not only is the air extremely dry with dry fuels, but the winds are picking up. Winds across the region will be sustained around 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 60 mph. Winds will continue to be gusty into Monday causing issues on the roadways and enhancing fire concerns. When it comes to outdoor burning, hold off if possible today and even Monday. Even cigarette buds need to be carefully disposed of. One very small, little spark can turn into a blazing fire very quickly due to all the conditions that are in place. https://twitter.com/NWSAlbuquerque/status/970282322804256768 For WeatherNation, Meteorologist Kate Mantych
