This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Near record high temperatures are expected again for this
afternoon. Due to very low relative humidity, the fire danger
will remain elevated, especially over the higher terrain and along
the front range.

For late this afternoon into this evening there will be a chance
of thunderstorms mainly across the plains. A few storms could
become severe over the far northeast corner of the state. Large
hail and damaging winds will be possible. Otherwise, the storms
will be slow moving which may lead to some localized flooding in
some areas as well. Across the higher terrain the storms will be
high based and will produce gusty winds with light rainfall.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

Scattered strong to severe thunderstorms are expected to form
Wednesday afternoon and early evening along the Front Range. These
storms will shift southeast onto the near by eastern plains.

Scattered thunderstorms are expected to form again Thursday
afternoon across the Front Range and eastern plains. The airmass
starts to dry Friday with only a slight chance for thunderstorms
across eastern Colorado. By Saturday, dry conditions are expected
through out the area.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
