Fire danger and thunderstorms are expected in Colorado Saturday.
All of eastern Colorado is at risk for severe thunderstorms, strong wind, large hail and tornadoes Friday afternoon.
Temperatures are expected to be cooler, with chances for rain during week in Kiowa County.
Look for mostly sunny skies and a high in the low 90s Sunday, with temperatures falling to the upper 50s overnight.
Monday will see upper 80s and a chance for showers and thunderstorms later in the day, with chances increasing slightly overnight. While less than one-tenth in of rain is generally expected, amounts could be higher where thunderstorms occur. Mid-50s are expected overnight.
The potential for severe weather has promoted a severe thunderstorm watch and a flash flood watch for portions of southeast Colorado.
A hot week with little chance of rain is on tap for Kiowa County, Colorado, this week.
Kiowa County missed most chances for severe thunderstorms Saturday, but won't dodge the wind and high fire danger through the weekend into the early part of the week.
A red flag warning for fire risk was in effect Saturday and is expected to return Sunday, while a fire weather watch covers the area Monday. The watch will likely become the third consecutive day for red flag warnings. All open burning and other activities which could spark a fire should be avoided.
