The National Weather Service in Denver has issued a red flag

also been issued from noon to 9 PM MDT Sunday. The Fire Weather
Watch is no longer in effect.

* Affected area... fire weather zone 214.

* Timing... fire danger will increase this afternoon as humidities
plunge and winds increase. Fire danger will ease slightly later
this evening, but critical conditions will redevelop on Sunday.

* Winds... south 10 to 20 mph with gusts up to 30 mph.

A red flag warning means that critical fire weather conditions
are either occurring now... .or will shortly. A combination of
strong winds... low relative humidity... and warm temperatures can
contribute to extreme fire behavior.
