...AREAS OF HEAVY RAIN STILL EXPECTED BUT FLASH FLOOD RISK
DIMINISHING...

THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTHEAST AND NORTH CENTRAL
COLORADO.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

RAIN SHOWERS AND A FEW THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE OVER THE FRONT
RANGE MOUNTAINS AND NEARBY PLAINS THROUGH MID AFTERNOON...THEN THE
SHOWERS WILL DIMINISH INTO THE EVENING. RAINFALL IN THIS AREA WILL
GENERALLY BE MODERATE WITH MOST AREAS PICKING UP ANOTHER QUARTER
TO HALF INCH OF RAINFALL...THOUGH SOME PLACES MAY GET AS MUCH AS
AN INCH. THE PLACES THAT GET HEAVIER RAIN COULD SEE SOME MINOR
FLOODING ALONG WITH ROCK AND MUD SLIDES. THERE REMAINS A CHANCE OF
GETTING THUNDERSTORMS WITH HEAVIER RAINFALL AND FLASH
FLOODING...BUT THE CHANCES OF THIS WILL DIMINISH AS DRIER AIR
MOVES IN THIS AFTERNOON. IN AREAS EAST OF FORT MORGAN ONLY
SCATTERED SHOWERS ARE EXPECTED...AND THE THREAT OF FLASH FLOODING
THERE IS NOW LOW.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY

HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT WILL BUILD INTO THE REGION TOWARD THE END OF
THE WEEK...REMAINING OVER THE AREA THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK.
SUFFICIENT MOISTURE WILL BE AROUND FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF
SCATTERED AFTERNOON AND EVENING SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS EACH OF
THURSDAY THROUGH SUNDAY...ESPECIALLY NEAR AND OVER THE HIGHER
TERRAIN. SOME OF THESE STORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING HEAVY
RAINS.

THERE ARE HINTS THAT A DISTURBANCE MAY AFFECT THE AREA EARLY NEXT
WEEK BRINGING A BETTER THREAT OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS...AGAIN
SOME WITH HEAVY RAINS...MONDAY AND TUESDAY.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED TODAY OR TONIGHT BUT
RAINFALL REPORTS WILL BE APPRECIATED.
