Very high wildfire warnings issued across Colorado – The Denver Post
High fire warnings have been issued across Colorado as multiple wildfires continue to scorch tens of thousands of acres from mountain forests to Eastern Plains grasslands.
The National Weather Service has issued warnings for northwest Colorado, the Eastern Plains southeast of Denver, the mountains southwest of Denver and the plains between Fort Collins and Fort Morgan.
It’s going to be another hot, dry day in Colorado with temperatures ranging from 99 degrees in Lamar to 93 degrees in Denver, the weather service says.
Isolated severe thunderstorms are possible east of a Sterling to Akron line.
“These storms will be capable of heavy rain, large hail, and severe winds,” according to the National Weather Service in Boulder.
There’s a 10 percent chance of afternoon rain showers and thunderstorms in Denver on Tuesday, when the high temperature is expected to reach 93 degrees.
The chance for rain increases on Wednesday, which is Independence Day, when the high temperature will be around 90 degrees.
Temperatures will remain in the upper 80s and lower 90s through the week.
