Red Flag Warnings in effect for Sunday!

A dry weather system will move through the Rocky mountains this weekend. Winds will become even stronger on Sunday. In anticipation of critical fire weather conditions, Red Flag Warnings have been issued for much of eastern Utah and western Colorado where fuels are critical. Additionally, a Dense Smoke Advisory has been issued once again for the Highway 550 corridor from Molas Pass south to the New Mexico border tonight through Sunday morning, due to smoke from the 416 Fire north of Durango. Be sure to heed any road closures due to smoke and fire management activities. Also, due to critical fire weather conditions and strong winds expected this weekend, outdoor burning is strongly discouraged.
