Wind And Fire And Spring Blizzard

Yesterday's strong winds spread a wildfire east of Douglas rapidly yesterday afternoon - photo above. The Baker Canyon fire is in rugged terrain near the New Mexico border. Winds gusted 30 to 50 mph over much of Arizona yesterday. Strongest gusts that I noted in observations from yesterday afternoon were: Winslow 63 mph; Pioneer Airfield 56 mpg; and the Guthrie RAWS site 51 mph. 

Meanwhile, much of northeastern Colorado is closed today due to heavy wet snow (after temperatures in 70s F yesterday). Above web can shows I-70 at Tower Road near DIA airport, which has been seriously impacted by the storm. Photo below is from downtown Boulder.
