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

.DAY ONE...TONIGHT

SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS THE FAR SOUTHEAST PLAINS
LATE THIS EVENING WILL SLOWLY DIMINISH AS THEY CONTINUE TO MOVE
EAST INTO WESTERN KANSAS OVERNIGHT. THESE STORMS ARE PRODUCING
LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN WITH LOCALIZED FLASH FLOODING POSSIBLE.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY

A FLASH FLOOD WATCH IS IN EFFECT FOR SOUTHEAST COLORADO FOR
THE EASTERN MOUNTAINS...INTERSTATE 25 CORRIDOR...AND MUCH OF THE
PLAINS FROM SUNDAY MORNING THROUGH SUNDAY EVENING.

A COLD FRONT WILL MOVE THROUGH SOUTHEAST COLORADO EARLY SUNDAY...WITH
INCREASING LOW LEVEL MOISTURE ACROSS THE AREA WITHIN THE DEVELOPING
UPSLOPE FLOW BEHIND THE FRONT. THE AMPLE LOW LEVEL MOISTURE AND
UPSLOPE FLOW...COMBINED WITH ABUNDANT MONSOONAL MOISTURE IN PLACE
ACROSS THE REGION...WILL LEAD TO THE POTENTIAL FOR HEAVY RAINFALL
AND POSSIBLE FLASH FLOODING ACROSS THE AREA...ESPECIALLY OVER THE
EASTERN SLOPES OF THE SOUTHERN FRONT RANGE AND NEAR AREA BURN
SCARS. AREA RESIDENTS SHOULD MAINTAIN A WEATHER AWARENESS ON
SUNDAY AND BE PREPARED TO TAKE ACTION IF FLOODING OCCURS OR IS
IMMINENT.

THE THREAT FOR HEAVY RAINFALL AND FLASH FLOODING WILL PERSIST INTO
THE UPCOMING WORK WEEK...AS MONSOON MOISTURE WITH WEAK EMBEDDED
DISTURBANCES SPREADS OVER SOUTHERN COLORADO. THIS WILL MEAN SCATTERED
TO NUMEROUS THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE MOUNTAINS EACH AFTERNOON...WITH
STORMS SPREADING ACROSS THE ADJACENT PLAINS THROUGH THE EVENING
HOURS. AS STORMS MOVE INTO THE SOUTHEAST PLAINS...THEY MAY BRIEFLY
BECOME SEVERE WITH THE THREAT FOR 1 INCH DIAMETER HAIL...AND WIND
GUSTS UP TO 60 MPH...ALONG WITH DANGEROUS CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING.
THESE MAY CONGEAL INTO ONE OR MORE THUNDERSTORM COMPLEXES WHICH
MAY BRING WIDESPREAD HEAVY RAINFALL TO PORTIONS OF THE SOUTHEAST
PLAINS. THIS THREAT LOOKS GREATEST FOR TUESDAY NIGHT. AS THIS
POTENTIAL MULTI-DAY RAINFALL EVENT UNFOLDS...IT IS POSSIBLE THAT
PORTIONS OF THE ARKANSAS AND PURGATORIE RIVERS...ALONG WITH THEIR
TRIBUTARY CREEKS AND STREAMS MAY EXPERIENCE LOCALIZED FLOODING AT
TIMES...THOUGH THIS WILL BE HIGHLY DEPENDENT ON WHERE THE HEAVIEST
RAIN FALLS.

HEAVY RAIN WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE ACROSS THE SOUTHWEST AND CENTRAL
MOUNTAINS DURING THIS PERIOD...BUT THE THREAT FOR FLASH FLOODING
MAY NOT BE AS WIDESPREAD AS COMPARED TO THE SOUTHEAST MOUNTAINS
AND PLAINS. BURN SCARS WILL BE MOST VULNERABLE TO THIS RISK.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

WEATHER CONDITIONS THAT MEET REPORTING CRITERIA FOR SPOTTERS WILL BE
POSSIBLE TONIGHT ACROSS THE FAR SOUTHEAST PLAINS.
