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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Strong to severe thunderstorms are possible this afternoon and
early this evening over portions of the eastern plains, mainly in
Baca, Prowers and Kiowa Counties. Damaging wind gusts in excess
of 60 mph are the main storm risks today, with small hail and
cloud to ground lightning also possible.

Critical fire weather conditions are likely this afternoon and
evening across the San Luis Valley, due to gusty winds, low
humidity and dry fuels.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

A few strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible on Saturday
across the southeast plains. Hail up to 1.50 inches in diameter
and wind gusts up to 70 mph will be possible northeast of a line
from Colorado Springs to Kim. The greatest hail risk will be north
of highway 50 with thunderstorms carrying a greater strong wind
threat to the south of highway 50. Blowing dust will be possible
and could briefly reduce visibility to under 1/2 mile. Isolated to
scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible across the
mountains and central valleys with gusty winds up to 50 mph,
lightning and brief light to moderate rainfall possible.
Meanwhile critical fire weather conditions will be possible across
the San Luis Valley on Saturday due to gusty winds, low humidity
and dry fuels.

Cooler and wetter weather will spread across southern Colorado
for Sunday through Tuesday with the heaviest precipitation
concentrated across the southeast mountains and Pikes Peak region.
Isolated thunderstorms will be possible across the mountains and
valleys each day, a few of which may move off into the adjacent
plains. These could produce locally heavy rainfall, small hail,
and locally gusty winds. Burn scar flash flooding will be possible
on Sunday should a stronger storm impact these areas. The
greatest risk will be south of highway 50 where snow levels will
remain above 10000 feet.

Snow levels will drop Sunday night across the mountains with
several inches of heavy wet snow possible across the higher
elevations of the central and southeast mountains. A few inches of
wet snow accumulations will be possible across the Palmer Divide
Sunday night and again Monday night, mainly on grassy surfaces as
snow levels waver down to around 7000 feet.

Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms continue into
Tuesday before the storm system moves out of the region during the
afternoon. Drier and warmer weather returns for the latter part of
the work week.


Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
possible this afternoon across the southeast plains.
