High winds and another red flag warning Thursday

Over the past few days in Denver, winds have been blowing up to 45 mph, with a gust of 116 mph recorded near Fraser. Winds could reach those speeds again on Thursday, creating dusty and maturing conditions for the fire.

According to the National Weather Service (NWS) in Boulder, Denver will reach 57 degrees under sunny skies on Thursday. Winds will increase throughout the day, up to 37 mph in the afternoon. A red flag warning is in place for the eastern half of the state, including Denver, until 8 p.m. Thursday. NWS warns that any sparks of fire are likely to spread quickly and outdoor burning should be avoided due to high winds and low humidity. The temperature will drop to 29 degrees overnight in Denver.

Friday should be sunny with a high of 67 degrees. Winds will ease a bit, gusting to 15 mph. Friday evening will remain clear, falling to 40 degrees.

Winds could still blow at 20 mph on Saturday, but that shouldn’t spoil a possible fine spring day. The maximum could reach 78 degrees under the sun, a few degrees lower than the record of 81 degrees set in 1977.
