THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTHEAST AND NORTH CENTRAL
COLORADO.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL ONCE AGAIN DEVELOP OVER THE
MOUNTAINS AND FOOTHILLS BY EARLY THIS AFTERNOON AND BECOME MORE
NUMEROUS THROUGH THE AFTERNOON. SOME OF THESE STORMS WILL MOVE OFF
THE FRONT RANGE AND OVER THE ADJACENT HIGH PLAINS AND PALMER
DIVIDE DURING THE AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING HOURS...AND THEN
GRADUALLY WEAKEN AS THEY MOVE FARTHER EAST INTO A DRIER AND MORE
STABLE ENVIRONMENT. BRIEF MODERATE TO HEAVY RAINFALL ALONG WITH
STRONG AND GUSTY OUTFLOW WINDS AS HIGH AS 50 MPH CAN BE EXPECTED.
OVERALL STORMS WILL PRODUCE LITTLE RAINFALL. ALTHOUGH A FEW
STORMS...ESPECIALLY IN THE HIGH COUNTRY...WILL HAVE THE POTENTIAL
TO PRODUCE UP TO AN INCH OF RAIN IN A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME.

A WEAK COOL FRONT MOVED ACROSS NORTHEAST COLORADO EARLY THIS
MORNING...BRINGING SLIGHTLY COOLER TEMPERATURES TO THE AREA. A
MOIST SOUTHWEST FLOW ALOFT COUPLED WITH THE LIFT AND INSTABILITY
PRODUCED BY A WEATHER DISTURBANCE MOVING ACROSS UTAH WILL PRODUCE
THE SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY EXPECTED LATER TODAY.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY

ANOTHER COLD FRONT WILL MOVE ACROSS NORTHEAST COLORADO EARLY
SUNDAY MORNING. THIS WILL RESULT IN A COOLER AND MORE STABLE
AIRMASS ON THE NORTHEAST PLAINS.  STORMS WILL BE MORE NUMEROUS IN
THE MOUNTAINS AND HIGHER TERRAIN ON SUNDAY AFTERNOON.

THE HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE ALOFT WILL REBUILD NORTH AND WEST OF
COLORADO NEXT WEEK WITH A NORTHWEST FLOW PATTERN EVOLVING ACROSS
COLORADO. THIS WILL RESULT IN UNSETTLED CONDITIONS WITH BELOW
NORMAL TEMPERATURES AND BETTER CHANCE FOR SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS. THE BEST CHANCE FOR STORMS WILL BE LATE TUESDAY
AND WEDNESDAY WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR HEAVY RAIN WITH THE STORMS.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED TODAY OR TONIGHT. HOWEVER
REPORTS OF HEAVY RAINFALL AND STRONG WIND GUSTS WOULD BE
APPRECIATED.
