This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of central...east
central...south central and southeast Colorado.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A strong storm system will move across the region this afternoon and
tonight.  This will bring moderate to heavy precipitation to much of
southern Colorado.  Snowfall over the Central Mountains of 3 to 7
inches is forecast, while the Sangre de Cristo and Wet Mountain
Ranges see 6 to 10 inches.  Locally higher amounts are possible over
the Wet Mountains.  Snow levels are expected to fall to near 6000
feet this evening with up to 3 inches of snow possible along and
west of the southern Interstate 25 corridor.

Moderate to heavy rainfall is forecast across the Eastern Plains
this afternoon and tonight.  Flash flooding will need to be
monitored on area burn scars, especially Junkins and Beulah Hills,
where rainfall will be heaviest this afternoon and evening before
turning to snow.  Areas south of Highway 50 have the potential to
see up to 1 inch or more of rainfall through tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

Unsettled weather will continue through early next week with
rounds of rain and mountain snow expected Wednesday night and
Thursday and again Friday night and Saturday. Isolated embedded
thunderstorms will be possible on Thursday with the potential for
lightning, small hail and wind gusts to around 50 mph possible
with the isolated stronger storms. Additional light to moderate
snowfall accumulations will be possible across the mountains
Wednesday night through Thursday with the central mountains likely
to see the heavier amounts.

Forecast model simulations suggest colder air will arrive with
the Friday night through Saturday storm system with rain
potentially mixing with or changing over to snow across portions
of the southeast plains by early Saturday morning. Light to
moderate snowfall accumulations will be possible across the
mountains. There is still quite a bit of uncertainty regarding
the storm track for the Friday night through Saturday storm so
please continue to monitor the latest forecasts.

Cold air with each of these systems will enhance the potential for
freezing temperatures each night across the plains, particularly
Friday night through Sunday night. Tender vegetation may need


Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
likely through tonight for all of Southern Colorado.
