DENVER (KDVR) — The Pinpoint Weather Team has issued a Pinpoint Weather Alert Day for Friday.

Low humidity, near-record temperatures, and strong winds have created extreme fire danger for a large portion of the state.

High wind warnings are in place for much of the state, along with Red Flag warnings.


Here’s when winds are expected to be strongest:

Winds will increase through the afternoon and will be strongest this afternoon and early evening.

“The strongest winds are expected this afternoon south and east of a line from Denver to Akron with gusts to 70 mph expected. The strong winds will cause areas of blowing dust, poor visibility & possible power outages/road closures,” the National Weather Service said.
