Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms will be possible

adjacent plains.  The main threat with thunderstorms today will be
locally heavy rainfall with the potential to cause flash flooding,
especially for susceptible burn scars such as Junkins, Spring and
Hayden Pass.  A Flash Flood Watch has been posted for this afternoon
through late tonight for these more susceptible burn scars.  Other
locations which received heavy rainfall yesterday will also be prone
to more localized flash flooding should they receive additional
heavy rainfall this afternoon or tonight.

One or two thunderstorms across the southeast mountains and plains
could become severe this afternoon and evening with the potential to
produce hail up to the size of half dollars, wind gusts up to 70 mph
and lightning.

Isolated thunderstorms will be possible across the western mountains
today where gusty winds and lightning will be the primary storm

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

Isolated to numerous primarily afternoon and evening showers and
thunderstorms, favoring higher terrain locations, will be
possible each day from Monday into Saturday.

The primary threats with thunderstorms will be locally heavy
rainfall, lightning, and wind gusts around 50 mph. There will also
be a risk for flash flooding on recent burn scars such as Spring,
Junkins and Hayden Pass. Finally, any stronger storms will be
capable of generating hail to around the size of nickels.


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