Fire danger will be high Sunday for Colorado Springs and surrounding areas, prompting the National Weather Service to issue a red flag warning from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

A combination of gusty winds, low humidity and dry fuels means fire could start and spread easily, according to the weather service.

Gusts are expected to reach 25 to 45 mph along the Interstate 25 corridor Sunday afternoon.

Affected areas include Colorado Springs, southern El Paso County, the Rampart Range area, Pueblo, Walsenburg, Trinidad, Lamar and other southeast and south central communities.

Tuesday afternoon also is expected to produce critical fire weather conditions.
