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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Scattered to widespread rain showers and thunderstorms are likely
this afternoon along the western mountains and interior mountain
valleys; especially over the high terrain of the Continental
Divide. Further east along the eastern mountains, rain showers and
thunderstorms will be isolated to widely scattered in nature.
Storms will be slow moving, and locally heavy rainfall and flash
flooding will be possible this afternoon and evening. Burn scars,
such as the Hayden Pass and Decker burn scars, will be
particularly susceptible today, as well as the Chalk Cliffs area.
Main hazards of thunderstorms today will be heavy downpours,
lightning, and gusty outflow winds up to 50 mph.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Numerous afternoon and evening thunderstorms will continue across
the mountains from Saturday into Monday, with isolated storms
possible along the I-25 corridor and across the eastern plains
each day. Storms will be generally slow moving and capable of
producing locally heavy rain, leading to enhanced flash flooding
risks, especially for burn scar areas. Other storm threats will
include lightning and gusty outflow winds to around 50 mph, and
some small hail will be possible with the stronger storms.

Storm coverage and intensity will begin to decrease from Tuesday
through the remainder of the week, as moisture levels fall across
the region, though isolated to scattered afternoon and evening
storms will be possible each day, mainly across the higher
terrain.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
possible across the mountains of south central and southeast
Colorado this afternoon and evening.
