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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Scattered to numerous thunderstorms will develop across the
mountains this afternoon, with one or two storms drifting across
interior valleys and out along the Palmer Divide by late in the day.
The main storm threats will be lightning and heavy rain. There will
be a continued risk of flash flooding over area burn scars, as
storms will again be very slow moving. A few stronger storms today
may also produce wind gusts to 50 mph and hail up to the size of
dimes. Thunderstorms will slowly dissipate this evening, with most
activity ending by midnight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

The mountains and high valleys will see daily rounds of scattered
afternoon and evening thunderstorms each day. Somewhat drier
conditions are expected over the eastern plains Wednesday and
Thursday, although isolated storms will remain possible. An
increase in storm activity is expected across all of south central
and southeast Colorado late in the week, which will continue into
early next week.

Lightning and locally heavy rain will be the main storm risks through
the week. This will include the risk of flash flooding, especially
over and near recent burn scars. Gusty outflow winds of up to 50
mph and small hail will also be possible with some of the stronger


Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
possible this afternoon and evening across the mountains of south
central Colorado.
