Rain showers will spread across the I-25 corridor and Plains overnight Monday into Tuesday. On and off rain will continue all day Tuesday with a few thunderstorms. 

Gusts up to 50 MPH are possible this evening with the worst of the winds arriving on Tuesday. Red flag warnings have been issued across the Plains through 8 PM: 


According to the NWS, a Red Flag Warning means warm temperatures, very low humidities, and stronger winds are expected to combine to produce an increased risk of fire danger.
