Fire Danger Threatens More Than Half Of Colorado

Marion, Monongalia, Preston, Tucker, Wetzel & Garrett Counties have been added to the Red Flag Warning which remains in effect from Noon until 8:00 PM Thursday.

Wind gusts of 15 to 25 miles per hour will be common throughout southside Virginia, and into the Piedmont of North Carolina this afternoon.

Forecasters with the National Weather Service are warning that parts of New Mexico are in for more windy conditions later this week and that means higher fire danger. "Take precautions, and plan ahead now to avoid any activities that could create a flame or spark".

Virginia's 4 p.m. law, which makes it illegal to have any open-air fire within 300 feet of woods or dry grass before that time, is still in effect.


Friday evening's forecast is calling for mostly clear skies, with a low around 37.

Locally in Seminole on Thursday, patchy blowing dust is anticipated after 1 p.m, otherwise, local residents can anticipate sunny skies with a high near 92.

A strong cold front will move through on Friday, causing a drastic drop in temperatures. 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. We have chances for mountain snow Thursday and Friday, along with a slight chance for some rain/snow in the lower elevations Friday.
