TO 45 MPH.

HOWEVER...THERE IS THE POSSIBILITY OF A FEW SEVERE STORMS FROM

RISK FOR SEVERE WEATHER WILL BE OVER KIOWA...BENT...PROWERS AND

FLASH FLOODING CONTINUES TO BE A CONCERN WITH ANY OF THE STRONGER
STORMS DUE TO SATURATED SOILS.

THE SOUTHEAST PLAINS ON THURSDAY...WITH THE THREAT FOR HAIL

LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL...AND LIGHTNING.

A BETTER CHANCE FOR WIDESPREAD SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL
ARRIVE FOR FRIDAY AND FRIDAY NIGHT AS ANOTHER UPPER LEVEL
DISTURBANCE MOVES SLOWLY ACROSS COLORADO. A COLD FRONT WILL SPREAD
UPSLOPE FLOW ACROSS THE PLAINS RESULTING IN WIDESPREAD SHOWERS
AND EMBEDDED THUNDERSTORMS IN AND NEAR THE MOUNTAINS BY FRIDAY
AFTERNOON...WHICH WILL CONTINUE THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT. LOCALLY
HEAVY RAINFALL WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR FLASH FLOODING WILL BE THE
PRIMARY STORM THREAT...THOUGH A FEW OF THE STRONGER STORMS MAY
ALSO PRODUCE SMALL HAIL AND DANGEROUS CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING.
MEANWHILE SEVERAL INCHES OF SNOW WILL BE POSSIBLE ACROSS THE
HIGHER PEAKS ABOVE 12000 FEET FRIDAY AND FRIDAY NIGHT.

ISOLATED TO SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE EACH DAY FOR
THE WEEKEND INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK...WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR STRONG
THUNDERSTORMS RETURNING TO THE FAR SOUTHEAST PLAINS EARLY NEXT
WEEK.

AREA RIVERS AND CREEKS WILL CONTINUE TO RUN HIGH OVER THE NEXT
SEVERAL DAYS AS MORE RAIN RESULTS IN ADDITIONAL RUNOFF. MORE
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS ALONG THESE RIVERS AND CREEKS MAY REMAIN ABOVE
FLOOD STAGE OR EXPERIENCE FLUCTUATIONS ABOVE AND BELOW FLOOD STAGE
AS THIS RUNOFF CONTINUES TO MAKE ITS WAY DOWNSTREAM.
