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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Latest high resolution computer guidance is indicating locally
heavy rain will be possible across the greater Pikes Peak region
starting late this afternoon and lasting into the evening hours.
In addition to the heavy rain, the potential for storms to produce
considerable amounts of small hail will also be possible. Some of
the guidance is indicating over an inch of rain occurring across
the Pikes Peak region, and this may cause quick rises in area
streams, along with local areas of flash flooding.

Over the mountains, showers and thunderstorms are expected to be
numerous this afternoon and evening. If a strong storm should move
over or develop over any of the burn scars, than flash flooding
will be possible.

All storms will produce dangerous cloud to ground lightning.

There is a very slight chance that a marginally severe storm could
occur, producing hailstones to 1 inch in diameter and wind gusts
to 60 mph.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

Afternoon and evening thunderstorms are expected each day from
Sunday into Friday. Initial thunderstorm development is forecast
over the mountains, spreading east into the Interstate 25 corridor
by late afternoon, then onto the plains during the evening hours.

On Sunday, there will be a marginal risk of a severe storm or two
over the plains generally north of highway 50. Hail up to quarter
size and wind gusts over 60 mph will be the primary threats.

Any thunderstorms over the region during the the next several
days may produce locally heavy rainfall, lightning, small hail and
gusty outflow winds to 50 mph.

Over the mountains, temperatures are expected to remain warm for
the next several days, with overnight lows staying above
freezing. This will enhance snow melt, and area rivers and streams
will likely flow at elevated rates. Caution is advised near
flowing water into next week.


Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
possible across the mountains, high valleys and I-25 corridor this
afternoon and evening.
