THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR PORTIONS OF CENTRAL...EAST
CENTRAL...SOUTH CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST COLORADO.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

MONSOON MOISTURE CONTINUES TO SPREAD EAST ACROSS COLORADO.  AS A
RESULT...ANOTHER ROUND OF THUNDERSTORMS IS EXPECTED TO TRACK ACROSS
THE AREA TODAY.  STORMS SHOULD START UP OVER THE MOUNTAINS DURING
THE LATE MORNING HOURS...AND THEN TRACK EAST ACROSS THE PLAINS
DURING THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING HOURS.

WIND SHEAR IS PRETTY WEAK SO THE THREAT OF SEVERE WEATHER IS LOW.
PRIMARY CONCERNS TODAY WILL BE LIGHTNING...LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN...AND
GUSTY WINDS.

AREA BURN SCARS WILL NEED TO BE MONITORED FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF
FLASH FLOODING.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY

THE THREAT FOR HEAVY RAINFALL AND FLASH FLOODING WILL INCREASE ON
SUNDAY AND CONTINUE THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK...AS MONSOON
MOISTURE WITH WEAK EMBEDDED DISTURBANCES SPREADS OVER SOUTHERN
COLORADO. THIS WILL MEAN SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS THUNDERSTORMS OVER
THE MOUNTAINS EACH AFTERNOON...SOME OF WHICH WILL SPREAD ACROSS
THE SOUTHEAST PLAINS DURING THE EVENING AND OVERNIGHT HOURS. THE
LOCATIONS WITH THE GREATEST RISK FOR FLASH FLOODING THROUGH THIS
PERIOD WILL BE IN AND NEAR THE SOUTHEAST MOUNTAINS WHERE EASTERLY
UPSLOPE FLOW WILL TRANSPORT RICH LOW LEVEL MOISTURE INTO THE
REGION. BURN SCARS WILL BE PARTICULARLY VULNERABLE TO THE THREAT
FOR FLASH FLOODING THROUGH MID WEEK.

AS STORM MOVE INTO THE SOUTHEAST PLAINS...THEY MAY BRIEFLY BECOME
SEVERE WITH THE THREAT FOR 1 INCH DIAMETER HAIL...AND WIND GUSTS
UP TO 60 MPH...ALONG WITH DANGEROUS CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING.
THESE MAY CONGEAL INTO ONE OR MORE THUNDERSTORM COMPLEXES WHICH
MAY BRING WIDESPREAD HEAVY RAINFALL TO PORTIONS OF THE SOUTHEAST
PLAINS. THIS THREAT LOOKS GREATEST FOR TUESDAY NIGHT. AS THIS
POTENTIAL MULTI-DAY RAINFALL EVENT UNFOLDS...IT IS POSSIBLE THAT
PORTIONS OF THE ARKANSAS AND PURGATORIE RIVERS...ALONG WITH THEIR
TRIBUTARY CREEKS AND STREAMS MAY EXPERIENCE LOCALIZED FLOODING AT
TIMES...THOUGH THIS WILL BE HIGHLY DEPENDENT ON WHERE THE HEAVIEST
RAIN FALLS.

HEAVY RAIN WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE ACROSS THE SOUTHWEST AND CENTRAL
MOUNTAINS DURING THIS PERIOD...BUT THE THREAT FOR FLASH FLOODING
MAY NOT BE AS WIDESPREAD AS COMPARED TO THE SOUTHEAST MOUNTAINS
AND PLAINS. BURN SCARS WILL BE MOST VULNERABLE TO THIS RISK.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

WEATHER CONDITIONS THAT MEET REPORTING CRITERIA FOR SPOTTERS WILL BE
POSSIBLE THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING ON AREA BURN SCARS.
