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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Isolated thunderstorms will be possible over the plains late this
afternoon and evening. The storms are expected to develop east of
the I-25 corridor and then move east across the far southeast
plains. Conditions are favorable for these storms to become severe,
and produce hail up the size of half dollars and wind gusts to 70
mph.

At this time, the most likely area for severe development looks to
be across the plains east of Highway 350 and south of Highway 50
although the threat area does extend farther to the west and
north of these bounds.

High resolution models are showing eastern Las Animas, Baca, Bent
and Prowers counties as prime targets for severe convection
today. Most models have convection initiating around 2 pm and
ending by 9 pm with the prime window for severe convection from 3
pm to 7 pm.

A distance shortwave passing well to the north of southern
Colorado may also help to trigger some convection farther
north. Some of the high resolution models show strong to severe
convection coming close to Kiowa County into the evening hours.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

Light accumulating snow will be possible over the higher terrain
along the Continental Divide Tuesday and Wednesday, especially the
eastern Sawatch and western Mosquito Ranges.

More significant snowfall will be possible across all of the
higher terrain on Thursday and Friday, as a storm system takes aim
on the area. The exact track of this system is still in question,
though it could bring moderate to heavy rain, and higher
elevation snowfall to much of area. Stay up to date on the latest
forecasts with this potentially high impact storm system.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
possible late this afternoon and evening over the southeast
plains.
