...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM NOON TO 6 PM MDT TUESDAY...

.DISCUSSION...
One final update for this evening. Initial look at the latest
information continues to point to little change in the air mass,
resulting in another round of critical fire conditions on Tuesday.
Therefore, have opted to upgrade most zones where fuels are
critical into a Red Flag Warning for Tuesday afternoon. Areas west
of Interstate 25 look to stand the best chance to see critical
conditions on Wednesday.
