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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL DEVELOP OVER
THE MOUNTAINS THIS AFTERNOON...WITH ISOLATED SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS SPREADING OFF INTO THE ADJACENT PLAINS DURING THE LATE
AFTERNOON AND EVENING.  THE MAIN THREAT WITH THUNDERSTORMS TODAY
WILL BE LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL...PARTICULARLY OVER THE MOUNTAIN
AREAS.  ALTHOUGH THE THREAT IS EXPECTED TO BE LESS WIDESPREAD THAN
THE PAST FEW DAYS...LOCALIZED FLASH FLOODING WILL BE STILL BE
POSSIBLE...ESPECIALLY OVER THE SUSCEPTIBLE BURN SCARS AND IN AREAS
OF STEEPER TERRAIN. COOLER TEMPERATURES WITH MORNING CLOUDS ARE
EXPECTED TO KEEP THE MAJORITY OF THE SOUTHEAST PLAINS TOO STABLE FOR
STRONG THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT...WHICH SHOULD KEEP THE THREAT FOR
FLASH FLOODING LOW.

ALTHOUGH THE MAIN THREAT WITH THUNDERSTORMS TODAY WILL BE HEAVY
RAINFALL...ONE OR TWO STORMS OVER THE MOUNTAINS COULD BRIEFLY BECOME
STRONG AND PRODUCE SOME SMALL HAIL UP TO 1/2 INCH IN DIAMETER AND
LOCAL WIND GUSTS UP TO 40 MPH.  LIGHTNING WILL BE A THREAT WITH ALL
THUNDERSTORMS TODAY.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY

ISOLATED SCATTERED PRIMARILY AFTERNOON AND EVENING SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS ARE ANTICIPATED OVER THE MAJORITY OF SOUTHERN
COLORADO FROM FRIDAY THROUGH NEXT WEDNESDAY WITH THE MOST
WIDESPREAD COVERAGE EXPECTED FROM FRIDAY INTO FRIDAY NIGHT AND
THEN AGAIN FROM MONDAY INTO NEXT WEDNESDAY.

THE STRONGER STORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING LOCALLY HEAVY
RAINFALL AND POTENTIAL ASSOCIATED HYDRO/FLASH FLOODING
ISSUES...ESPECIALLY OVER AREA BURN SCARS AND LOCATIONS WHICH
RECEIVED RECENT SIGNIFICANT PRECIPITATION. IN ADDITION...HAZARDOUS
LIGHTNING WILL BE POSSIBLE WITH ANY THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY.

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT AREA BURN SCARS...URBAN AREAS...STEEP
TERRAIN LOCATIONS AND AREAS THAT HAVE RECEIVED RECENT HEAVY
PRECIPITATION 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 THE MOUNTAINS AND
SOUTHERN I-25 CORRIDOR.
