Red Flag warning for areas surrounding Gillette

(Gillette, Wyo.) According to the National Weather Service, due to dry conditions around Northeast Wyoming, chance of fire is severely elevated. Temperatures in the 60s with little chance of precipitation until later in the week, and wind gusts up to 40 miles per hour make up the conditions for the alert. You can see where the greatest danger is in a ring around Gillette, from Buffalo to Wright to Moorcroft. Outdoor burning in these areas is not recommended. The warning runs until tonight. #county17 #news
