This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A couple severe thunderstorms are expected to develop across the
eastern half of the plains of Colorado this afternoon where the
available moisture will be the best. High instability along and
with sufficient wind shear will bring a threat of storms with
very large hail, damaging winds, and a possible tornado. Storms
are first expected to develop after 2 pm, and then move northeast
across the northeast plains of Colorado through 6 PM. After that
time, the threat of any severe weather will decrease.

Dry weather will persist across the Denver area and points
southwest this afternoon. A few showers and storms later this
evening and overnight may develop back along the Front Range, but
mainly north of Denver. Fire danger will reach critical levels in
the Park County area today. Be careful to fully extinguish any
campfires this holiday weekend.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

Showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop across much
of the outlook area on Monday and Tuesday. Some late day storms
on Monday could turn severe on the northeast plains and along the
northern Front Range foothills. Large hail and damaging winds will
be the main threats, maybe an isolated tornado or two. The chance
of thunderstorms will continue on Wednesday. Drier and warmer
weather should then return late in the week under a strong ridge
of high pressure.


Spotter activation will likely be required over the northeast
plains of Colorado by 1-2 PM.
