GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) -- All of Western Colorado is under a critical red flag wildfire warning until 10:00 p.m. tonight.

Besides low humidity and high wind gusts that could feed a fire, weather forecasters are concerned about dry lightning from scattered thunderstorms.

The National Weather service in Grand Junction says the storms will produce little or no rain and cause erratic wind gusts up to 50 mph.
