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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Localized gusty west winds to between 40 and 50 mph will continue
through early afternoon along the I-25 corridor particularly in
the Pueblo area and around Walsenburg. Wind gusts will gradually
decrease through the afternoon, however due to low humidity
values extreme caution should still be exercised to avoid the
start of wildfires.

Isolated thunderstorms will be possible across the Continental
Divide today where dangerous cloud to ground lightning will be the
primary risk.

Light accumulations of an inch or two of snow will be possible
above timberline across the central mountains through tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

More snowfall will be possible across the mountains Thursday and
Friday, as a storm system moves over Colorado. Moderate rain may
fall over the Palmer Divide and lower elevations of the Pikes
Peak region, and light to moderate snow will be possible on Pikes
Peak and in the Wet Mountains and Sangre de Cristo mountains.

Thunderstorms will be possible Thursday, Friday and Saturday,
mainly in the afternoon and evening hours. The main storm threats
will be lightning and wind gusts to 40 mph, although some of the
stronger storms may also produce small hail.

Snowfall will then return to the Continental Divide Tuesday, as
another low pressure system approaches from the west.


Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
possible today and this evening in the central mountains.
