Sunny & Warm With A Fire Threat

A Red Flag Warning is in effect for El Paso & Fremont County as well as the Wet and Sangre Mountains and the Wet Mountain Valley.  TThis is in place as fuel remains dry, winds remain high and the humidity is almost non-existant.  For everyone else, you still have a fire threat, just no watches or warnings as other areas aren't reporting dry fuel.  But conditions will still be good for fires to spread easily.

We're in for another round of Monday on Tuesday. This means more sunshine, wind and even fire danger as the humidity stays very low. Highs will once again be in the 80s and 90s, about 5 degrees above average. This will come with a few afternoon clouds, but for the most part, we'll stay mostly sunny throughout your Tuesday.

A storm over the Pacific Northwest will be tracking eastward throughout the week.  As it moves to our north on Wednesday and Thursday, temperatures will drop off slightly with a few more clouds.  But besides the high country, the rain will stay north of our area.  You can expect most locations falling into the 70s and 80 for Thursday.

A look ahead at the weekend doesn't look too bad.  Saturday is looking better with lots of sun and warmth.  Then on Sunday, we start to see our next chance for some spotty showers.  Especially farther north and in higher elevations.  Everyone has a chance for showers on Monday of next week.

Hope you get to enjoy some of this week's warmth... Meteorologist Valerie Abati.
