The two month anniversary of the Marshall Fire in Boulder County is almost here and we still don’t know how it started. Today, though, a closer look at why -- the conditions that turned it into a fire storm and what the spring and summer may hold.

Denver7 Chief Meteorologist Mike Nelson has been a leader in bringing climate change to local TV weather forecasts and he'll join us regularly on Colorado Matters for conversations about weather and climate.

Mike Nelson is also the author of "The World's Littlest Book on Climate: 10 Facts in 10 Minutes about CO2." You can get a free copy at this link.
