DENVER (AP) - A heat wave is continuing across Colorado.
The National Weather Service said Tuesday high temperatures and windy conditions are creating high fire danger across most of the state.
Denver, Colorado Springs and Pueblo all set new records for high temperatures on Monday and have a chance of doing so again. The hottest weather is expected in parched southeastern Colorado where it's expected to hit 104 in Springfield.
Too much water is the problem in parts of the mountains as the sun quickly melts the snowpack. Minor flooding is again expected in the Dillon area.
Some small fires broke out Monday, including one that was sparked by lightning in Rocky Mountain National Park.
Denver International Airport hit a record 99 degrees Monday afternoon. The previous record was 97 degrees, set in 1952.
