Dry thunderstorms in the forecast for Colorado and New Mexico

Firefighters in New Mexico and Colorado have enough on their hands right now, but today they have to be concerned about the forecast for dry thunderstorms — lightning with little or no rain. A Red Flag Warning has been issued that is in effect from 1 p.m. until 9 p.m. MDT today for low humidity and gusty winds to accompany the lightning.

The National Weather Service’s Red Flag Warning web page is broken and will not display the warning areas, so we substituted this “Fire Weather Outlook” from the Storm Prediction Center.

We inquired about the broken web page and Corey Pieper of the NWS told us there was a database outage Wednesday night and the site should be functioning soon.
