There's a fire weather watch in effect this afternoon in western central and southwest Colorado.

Thunderstorms producing little rain but a lot of lightning have the potential to spark some fires and similar storms are expected the rest of the week.

This comes a day after cooler, more humid weather helped fire crews make progress on two wildfires in southern Colorado.

The nearly 14,000 acre wildfire burning in the San Luis Valley is now 70 percent contained.
