Colorado and Utah wildfires
Boulder Flagstaff Fire Time Lapse
- stein0726, CNN iReport producer
Boulder has seen very little moisture in the last few months and in recent days the temperatures have been in the hundreds with humidity in the low 10s or even single digits. This fire was probably started by dry lighting from a small storm that occurred around 1pm. I happened to be driving south bound around this time and saw several strikes in the general area of the fire.
More thunderstorms are forecast for the next few days, unfortunately we seem to be getting hardly any rain, not even enough to turn on the windshield wipers. Several fires broke out today in the Colorado front range, it appears this will continue to happen until we get a change in weather that brings some significant moisture.
