Fire danger...normal in Colorado this year

The National Interagency Fire Center has released the Wildland Fire Outlook for the United States. Colorado has normal fire concerns this year, but there is the possibility of problems due to the dead trees (thanks to the Rocky Mountain Pine Beetle) and early snow melt. (And to think I was enjoying the fact that I can now sit on my porch when I read the paper.)

You can also check out the maps and some additional data at the NICC Predictive Services web site. As the summer progresses, you can get monthly and even daily outlooks for fire danger.

Want more information on the national parks and forests? Check out the library's guide.

And finally, thanks Government News for Montana for pointing out this site.
