Fire danger high in much of Southwest

Posted: Updated:
DENVER (AP) - Warm, hot weather and gusty winds are raising the risk of wildfires in the Southwest.

Red flag warnings have been posted Monday for Colorado Springs and other parts of Colorado as well as New Mexico and Arizona. The danger is also high in the Texas Panhandle and southwestern Kansas

On the plains of southeastern Colorado, temperatures are expected to hit the 90s.

Any fires that start are likely to spread quickly.

Conditions have improved somewhat in California, where ocean breezes and lower temperatures over the weekend helped firefighters gain the upper hand on wildfires there.
