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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

One or two severe thunderstorms will be possible along the Kansas
border today, primarily across Kiowa and northern Prowers Counties
between 3 and 6 pm.  Primary risks will be 1 inch diameter hail,
wind gusts to 60 mph, locally heavy rain and lightning.

Elsewhere, isolated thunderstorms are expected during the afternoon
and evening hours.  Primary risks from these storms will be
lightning and wind gusts to around 50 mph.

Snow showers will fall in the mountains today and tonight. Snow
levels will start out around 9500 feet today and then lower to
around 8500 feet tonight.  Local accumulations of 1 or 3 inches
will be possible, primarily on grassy areas.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

Daily rounds of isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms,
as well as higher terrain snow at times, can be expected from
Wednesday into Monday. At this time, the primary storm threats
include locally heavy rainfall, lightning, wind gusts around 50
mph at times and hail generally under one inch in diameter,
although portions of the southeastern Colorado plains on Thursday
have the potential of experiencing wind gusts around 60 mph as
well as hail around 1 inch in diameter. In addition, it still
appears that the highest potential for accumulating snow,
primarily over higher terrain locations should be noted from later
Wednesday into Friday night.


Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
possible this afternoon and tonight across the mountains and far
eastern plains.
