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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL REDEVELOP OVER
THE MOUNTAINS BY LATE MORNING WHICH WILL SPREAD OFF INTO THE
ADJOINING PLAINS DURING THE LATE AFTERNOON AND EVENING HOURS.  HEAVY
RAINFALL AND DANGEROUS CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING WILL BE THE PRIMARY
STORM THREATS AS THE ATMOSPHERE CONTAINS ABUNDANT MOISTURE FROM
WITHIN THE MONSOON PLUME ALOFT.  SOUTHEAST LOW LEVEL UPSLOPE FLOW
WILL PUT THE GREATEST RISK FOR FLASH FLOODING ACROSS THE SOUTHEAST
MOUNTAINS AND I-25 CORRIDOR THROUGH THIS EVENING.  HOWEVER HEAVY
RAIN AND FLASH FLOODING WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE ACROSS THE EASTERN
SAN JUAN AND LA GARITA MOUNTAINS MOUNTAINS TODAY. BURN SCARS...
URBAN AREAS...AND LOCATIONS WHICH RECEIVED HEAVY RAINFALL
SUNDAY WILL BE THE MOST PRONE TO FLASH FLOODING THROUGH THIS
EVENING.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY

THE RISK FOR HEAVY RAINFALL AND FLASH FLOODING WILL CONTINUE
THROUGH THE WEEK. SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS THUNDERSTORMS WILL OCCUR
OVER THE MOUNTAINS EACH AFTERNOON...WITH STORMS SPREADING ACROSS
THE ADJACENT HIGH VALLEYS AND PLAINS THROUGH THE EVENING HOURS. AS
STORMS MOVE INTO THE I-25 CORRIDOR AND SOUTHEAST PLAINS...THEY MAY
BRIEFLY BECOME SEVERE WITH THE RISK FOR ONE INCH DIAMETER
HAIL...AND WIND GUSTS UP TO 60 MPH...ALONG WITH CLOUD TO GROUND
LIGHTNING. THESE COULD MERGE INTO THUNDERSTORM COMPLEXES...WHICH
COULD BRING HEAVY RAINFALL TO PORTIONS OF THE SOUTHEAST PLAINS.
THIS THREAT LOOKS GREATEST FOR TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY NIGHT. WITH
THE POTENTIAL FOR A MULTI-DAY RAINFALL EPISODE...IT IS POSSIBLE
THAT PORTIONS OF THE ARKANSAS AND PURGATORIE RIVERS...ALONG WITH
THEIR TRIBUTARY CREEKS AND STREAMS MAY EXPERIENCE FLOODING AT
TIMES.

LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE ACROSS THE ON AND NEAR
THE CONTINENTAL DIVIDE...BUT THE RISK FOR FLASH FLOODING MAY NOT
BE AS GREAT COMPARED TO THE SOUTHEAST MOUNTAINS AND PLAINS.

AREA BURN SCARS...URBAN AREAS...AND STEEP TERRAIN WILL BE MOST
VULNERABLE TO THE FLASH FLOOD RISK.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

WEATHER CONDITIONS THAT MEET REPORTING CRITERIA FOR SPOTTERS WILL BE
POSSIBLE THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING ACROSS SOUTH CENTRAL AND
SOUTHEAST COLORADO.
