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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL DEVELOP ACROSS THE REGION
THIS AFTERNOON BEFORE GRADUALLY DIMINISHING THIS EVENING. THE
PRIMARY STORM THREATS WILL BE LIGHTNING...PEA SIZE HAIL...AND
BRIEF MODERATE RAINFALL. A FEW STORMS MAY PRODUCE SOME LOCALLY
HEAVY RAIN...ESPECIALLY ACROSS THE SOUTHEAST PLAINS.

ALTHOUGH LATEST FORECAST SIMULATIONS KEEP THE MAJORITY OF THE
RAINFALL TO THE EAST AND SOUTH OF THE WALDO CANYON BURN
SCAR...THERE IS STILL A SLIGHT CHANCE THAT SOME BRIEF MODERATE
RAINFALL COULD IMPACT THE BURN SCAR THIS AFTERNOON. IF THIS
OCCURS...SOME MINOR RUN-OFF PROBLEMS WILL BE POSSIBLE THOUGH
RAINFALL RATES ARE NOT LIKELY TO BE INTENSE ENOUGH OR LAST LONG
ENOUGH TO CAUSE FLASH FLOODING. A SLIGHTLY GREATER THREAT FOR RUN-
OFF PROBLEMS EXIST ON THE EAST PEAK BURN SCAR WHERE THE GROUND HAS
ALREADY SEEN SOME GENTLE RAIN AMOUNTS OF UP TO .50 INCHES THROUGH
THIS MORNING. IF A STRONGER STORM IMPACTS THIS AREA THIS
AFTERNOON...THEN ENHANCED RUN-OFF AND LOCALIZED FLASH FLOODING
COULD OCCUR.

ABOVE 10000 FEET...LOCAL WET SNOW ACCUMULATIONS OF A FEW INCHES
WILL BE POSSIBLE THROUGH THIS EVENING.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY

ISOLATED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE OVER THE
MOUNTAINS ON MONDAY. THE MAIN STORM THREATS WILL BE LIGHTNING AND
BRIEF MODERATE RAINFALL.

A DRYING TREND IS EXPECTED THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF THE WEEK AS INCREASING
SOUTHWEST WINDS...COMBINED WITH LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY
LEVELS...COULD PRODUCE NEAR CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS ON
WEDNESDAY.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

WEATHER CONDITIONS THAT MEET REPORTING CRITERIA FOR SPOTTERS WILL BE
POSSIBLE ACROSS SOUTHERN COLORADO TODAY THROUGH EARLY EVENING.
