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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Isolated to scattered thunderstorms will develop across the
mountains during the early afternoon and spread eastward into the
adjacent plains during mid afternoon through the evening. The
main risks with thunderstorms across the mountains and valleys
will be localized gusty winds up to 50 mph but with little or no
rainfall. As storms move east, one or two severe thunderstorms
will be possible across the southeast plains. Initially the main
risk with thunderstorms will be gusty outflow winds up to 65 mph
and isolated lightning strikes which could spark a wild fire. As
storms move east of a line from La Junta to Kim, they will
encounter more moisture with the added risk of hail up to 1 inch
in diameter, dangerous cloud to ground lightning, and brief
moderate rainfall especially as they get closer to the Kansas
border this evening. The window for severe thunderstorm potential
will be from 2 PM to 10 PM.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

Critical Fire Weather conditions will likely continue into this
week, first across the mountains and valleys, then spreading
eastward into the southeast plains late week. Thursday will be the
most concerning High Fire Danger day across southern Colorado as
gusty west winds increase ahead of another storm system.

Isolated to scattered thunderstorms will be possible Tuesday and
Wednesday across portions of the eastern mountains and plains. The
main risk with thunderstorms will be strong outflow winds and
lightning, but only spotty light rainfall amounts. However, there is
the chance for a strong to severe storm or two across the eastern
plains Tuesday and Wednesday if low level moisture behind a cold
front increases sufficiently. Hail and locally heavy rain will be
possible if this occurs.


Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will
be possible over portions of the region.
