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

.DAY ONE...Tonight

An isolated strong to severe thunderstorm is possible over the far
eastern plains this evening. Golfball sized hail and wind gusts
around 60-70 mph are possible if storms develop. There is also a
slight chance for a strong storm to develop over El Paso and
Pueblo Counties toward midnight, with the main risks being hail
up to an inch in diameter and wind gusts up to 60 mph.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

It will be hot and mostly dry across southern Colorado. Isolated
thunderstorms will be possible beginning Saturday and continuing
into next week. The best chances will be over and near the
mountains. Thunderstorms will be high based with the main storm
risks being lightning, gusty erratic winds up to 50 mph but little
to no rainfall. A slightly better chance for showers and
thunderstorms will occur on Sunday as a weather system moves
across the area. With better moisture and instability across the
plains, a few strong storms will be possible near the Kansas
border bringing a chance for some locally heavy rainfall, small
hail and erratic gust winds.

Critical fire weather conditions may spread across the mountains,
valleys and adjacent plains on Tuesday as winds increase ahead of
the next weather system. A cold front will move through the
plains Tuesday night bringing a slight cool down for Wednesday
along with a potential uptick in thunderstorm chances to the
southeast mountains and plains.


Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
possible over the far eastern plains this evening, and over El
Paso and Pueblo Counties during the overnight.
