Warm, dry weather sparks extreme fire danger for most of Colorado

"Virginia's 4 p.m. law is still in effect, making it illegal to have an open-air fire before 4 p.m. within 300 feet of the woods or dry grass leading to the woods".

Our latest Colorado weather pattern is producing a triple threat of gusty winds, low humidity and warm temperatures. Take caution to still avoid outdoor burning. Lows drop to the 30s and 40s under mostly clear skies.

Strong wind gusts of 50 to 60 miles per hour will be possible across the Front Range and Foothills on Thursday.

Fire Weather Watches have already been posted by the National Weather Service (NWS) covering northern and western Virginia for Thursday afternoon.

I would not be surprised if another Red Flag Warning is issued for Thursday as well as winds are expected to be even stronger. Strongest wind gusts are expected along and north of Interstate 64 in Virginia and West Virginia, where gusts may reach 30 to 35 miles per hour. Forecasters say conditions are ripe for a fire to grow quickly if it starts.

Mountain highs will reach the 40s and 50s, with clouds building in the afternoon when snow showers are possible.

Farther south toward the Virginia North Carolina Border, winds speeds will be less, but still pose a concern, especially during the peak heating part of the afternoon when leaf litter and brush will be the driest.
