Much of the eastern Colorado plains and central mountains are under a red flag warning for high fire risk Sunday, with similar conditions expected to return Monday for at least part of the area.

Winds are predicted to gust as high as 60 miles per hour. In combination with low relative humidity, any fires that do start could spread rapidly. Humidity may fall as low as 10 percent for parts of Colorado.
