Another day of critical fire weather is expected Friday in the Denver area, something the National Weather Service in Boulder called a "broken record forecast."

"At least it's not as windy as yesterday," the weather service said in a tweet early Friday, "but still very dry and quite breezy late this morning through early evening."

The area is under a red flag warning from 11-8 p.m.

Friday's forecast in Denver calls for sunny skies with a high near 77 degrees and wind gusts up to 24 mph. Warmer weather is expected Saturday, with temps in the 80s.
