Warnings for elevated wildfire danger have been issued by the National Weather Service for areas in Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado, Oklahoma, Colorado, New Mexico Arizona, Nevada, and California.
The weather forecasters in Utah frequently interpret fire danger differently than the NWS personnel in the neighboring states of Nevada, Arizona, and Colorado. Weather patterns and vegetation conditions rarely recognize state borders… except in Utah.
The Red Flag Warning map was current as of 9:40 a.m. MDT on Friday. Red Flag Warnings can change throughout the day as the National Weather Service offices around the country update and revise their forecasts. For the most current data, visit this NWS site.
