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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

A few severe thunderstorms are likely across the southeastern
plains of Colorado, with the most intense storms likely occurring
across northern El Paso county.

Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are expected to develop by
early afternoon along the east slopes of the southern mountains.
as these storms move east during the early to mid afternoon time
period, one or two of the storms are expected to become severe,
especially over northern El Paso county. Large hail, up to the
size of golf balls, is possible,

Over the remainder of the plains, one or two severe storms will
be possible late this afternoon and evening as the storms move
southeastward towards the borders of Kansas and Oklahoma. Wind
gusts to 65 mph and half dollar size hail will occur.

The overall best chance of severe storms along the I-25 corridor
will be between 2 and 5 pm, and during the late afternoon and
evening hours across the far southeastern plains.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are expected on Thursday
afternoon across southern Colorado. A few of the storms could
become strong across the plains, mainly east of the I-25 corridor.
Cloud to ground lightning and gusty winds will be the primary
threats with any storm that develops, while locally heavy rainfall
and large hail are possible with some of the stronger storms.

Daily isolated thunderstorms will be possible over the mountains
Friday through Tuesday. A few storms during this time could make
it to the high valleys or I-25 corridor.

If heavy rain does move over one of the newer burn scars, there
is a risk for flash flooding or debris flows.


Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
possible this afternoon over the Interstate 25 corridor and the
southeast plains.
