Most of the southern plains and the southwest will be under Red Flag Warnings on Monday, April 16. The strong, gusty winds and low humidity will continue into Tuesday for many of the areas. The eight states affected are California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, and Wyoming.

Utah miraculously avoided the weather that three of its neighbor states are experiencing. Forecasters there often march to a different drummer regarding Red Flag Warnings.

The Red Flag Warning map was current at 10 a.m. MDT on Monday. Red Flag Warnings can change throughout the day as the National Weather Service offices around the country update and revise their forecasts.
