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

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

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT

SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS THUNDERSTORMS WILL DEVELOP OVER THE MOUNTAINS
THIS AFTERNOON...AND WILL DRIFT OFF INTO THE ADJACENT PLAINS
DURING THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING HOURS. THE MAIN THREATS WITH
THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL...AND DANGEROUS CLOUD
TO GROUND LIGHTNING. HOWEVER...ONE OR TWO STORMS COULD BRIEFLY
BECOME STRONG ESPECIALLY OVER THE MOUNTAINS...PRODUCING HAIL UP TO
THE SIZE OF NICKELS.

RAINFALL RATES OF UP TO 2 INCHES PER HOUR WILL BE POSSIBLE WITH THE
STRONGER STORMS TODAY WHICH COULD RESULT IN FLASH FLOODING OF
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS SUCH AS BURN SCARS...URBAN AREAS...AND IN
LOCATIONS WITH STEEP TERRAIN. THE SOUTHEAST MOUNTAINS AND
INTERSTATE 25 CORRIDOR WILL HAVE THE GREATEST RISK FOR FLASH
FLOODING THROUGH THIS EVENING DUE TO A COMBINATION OF MOIST
EASTERLY UPSLOPE FLOW AND MONSOON MOISTURE ALOFT.

THUNDERSTORMS WILL GRADUALLY DIMINISH DURING THE EVENING
HOURS...THOUGH A FEW THUNDERSTORMS MAY LINGER OVER THE MOUNTAINS
AND THE FAR SOUTHERN PLAINS THROUGH THE NIGHT.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY

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...THOUGH THIS WILL BE HIGHLY DEPENDENT ON WHERE THE HEAVIEST
RAIN OCCURS.

LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE ACROSS THE SOUTHWEST AND
CENTRAL MOUNTAINS DURING THIS PERIOD...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 ALL OF SOUTH CENTRAL AND
SOUTHEAST COLORADO.
