This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Scattered thunderstorms will develop across the area this
afternoon and evening. The storms will develop over the mountains
during the early afternoon, and then spread eastward onto the
plains later this afternoon into early evening. Most of the storms
in and near the mountains will produce light rain and gusty
winds. However, as they encounter more moisture and instability
over the eastern plains they will gain strength. Isolated stronger
storms with gusty winds up to 50 mph, brief heavy rain, and some
hail will be possible after 4 PM roughly along and east of a line
from Sterling to Akron and Deer Trail.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Subtropical moisture over the state will combine with a passing weather
disturbance to produce scattered thunderstorms from the mountains
out on to the plains Thursday afternoon.  The stronger storms may
produce heavy rainfall, hail, and gusty winds, but the threat of
flooding will be low. Friday through early next week will be
warmer with fewer thunderstorms as a strong upper ridge builds
over the Great Basin and flow over Colorado becomes drier.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
