Smoke from the 416 fire burning in Durango may be visible in El Paso County Friday, meteorologists say.
County firefighters have received multiple calls reporting smoke on the mountains, but crews have found no fires or defined smoke columns, radio scanner traffic reported.
The National Weather Service confirmed in a tweet that a thin layer of smoke is sitting over the county.
The fire, which sparked June 1, has burned 5,103 acres and is 10 percent contained.
El Paso County is not under a red flag warning Friday, though the high temperature is well above-average. The weather service predicted a high of 91 degrees for Colorado Springs, 15 degrees higher than the average but four degrees short of the 1985 record.
The weekend’s highs will be near the mid-90s, with highs of 94 degrees and 95 degrees forecast for Saturday and Sunday, respectively.
