Beltane Mountain Moon
A local weather guy who lives on Conifer Mountain, on the left as we drive up Shadow Mountain Drive toward home, posts as wxgeek: “The Red Flag Warning today is for southern Park County, and Teller county, but not for Jefferson County, so depends where you live, but consider fire danger elevated today in all foothill areas due to warm temps, gusty southwest winds and low RH values. This will be our everyday life until Monsoon season begins.”
