Much of Colorado has been experiencing lower-than-average precipitation since the ski season. Now in the peak heating of summer, that lack of rain and snow is quickly catching up to the wildfire concern. Unfortunately the wildfire threat is going to remain high for quite some time. Check in with burn bans in your area and please do all you can to prevent the ignition of a wildfire. Stay with WeatherNation as we keep you informed about the latest weather outlooks for wildfires.
