...SEVERE WEATHER EXPECTED AGAIN FOR THE PLAINS THIS AFTERNOON
AND EVENING...

This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central
Colorado.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Another round of strong to severe thunderstorms is likely this
afternoon and evening across the plains. Look for scattered
thunderstorms to develop across the higher terrain, including the
Foothills, Palmer Divide, and Cheyenne Ridge area by noon. Those
storms will develop and move east across the plains early this
afternoon and evening. Large hail up to 2 inches in diameter,
damaging winds of 60 mph or more, and even a couple tornadoes will
be possible from the stronger storms. Heavy rain will also be an
impact, causing localized flooding problems over urban areas with
poor drainage, low lying areas, and potentially over southeastern
Weld County into northwesterly Morgan County where 4 to 6 inches
of rain fell last night.

Outflow and a cool front will push down from the north this
evening to likely keep some storms going and may even bring a
second round to the area mid-evening. Storms are then expected to
decrease from west to east across the plains around midnight.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

Drier weather will return for Wednesday through Saturday with
only a slight chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon and
evening. A weather system may affect the area by Sunday bringing
a better chance of thunderstorms.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation may be required by 1 PM.
