DENVER (CBS4) – Monday winds have been quite strong across western and southern Colorado. This has elevated the fire danger in those areas to start the week.
Winds will be getting stronger and stronger over Colorado by Tuesday morning. With high pressure moving out and a cold front whipping in.
Winds across the entire state have the potential to blow as high as 50 to 55 mph during the day on Tuesday. Adding more real estate to the fire danger area.
The wind producing cold front will expand the fire threat northward as close to Denver as Parker, Elizabeth and Bennett.
Winds should weaken for Wednesday and Thursday.
