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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected across
the region through this afternoon. The best coverage of storms is
expected across the Pikes Peak region, spreading south and east
across the Eastern Plains, mainly north of Highway 50. A few
thunderstorms may become strong to severe. Strong outflow wind
gusts in excess of 60 mph may be possible with stronger storms.
Otherwise, the main thunderstorm risks will be lightning, with
gusty outflow winds up to 50 mph and small hail.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Isolated to scattered thunderstorms will be possible on Friday
across southern Colorado. One or two strong to marginally severe
storms will be possible across Baca and Prowers Friday afternoon
and evening with hail around 1 inch in diameter and wind gusts to
60 mph possible. Elsewhere, storms will be higher based with gusty
outflow winds up to 50 mph and lightning the primary storm risks.

Isolated to scattered thunderstorms will be possible on Saturday.
A few strong to severe storms will be possible across portions of
the southeast plains Saturday afternoon and evening with large
hail and wind gusts in excess of 60 mph possible. Although prone
to change depending on the timing of a cold front, the greatest
risk for severe storms appears to be northeast of a line from
Colorado Springs to Kim.

Strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible across the
southeast mountains and adjacent plains on Sunday behind the cold
front, if sufficient moisture and instability can remain in place. Localized
flash flooding on newer burn scars will also be possible on
Sunday if storms should impact these areas.

Showers and isolated embedded thunderstorms will become more
widespread Sunday night across the adjacent plains with snow
levels dropping to around 9000 feet across the mountains. A few
inches of snowfall will be possible into Monday morning across the
mountains.

Another round of showers and thunderstorms...a few strong across
the plains...will be possible again on Monday with some light to
moderate wet snow accumulations possible across the mountains.
Then drier and warmer weather returns for Tuesday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
possible this afternoon across the southeast plains.
