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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Isolated thunderstorms are possible over the plains late this
afternoon and early evening, mainly along a line from roughly Kim
to Lamar. If storms do develop, they will be capable of strong
gusty winds to 40 to 50 mph.

Scattered thunderstorms are possible across the San Juans, the
southern San Luis Valley and the Southern Sangre De Cristo
mountains. Locally heavy rain is possible. Isolated thunderstorms
are possible across the remainder of the high terrain.

Burn scar flash flooding is low today. However, the highest
chance of locally heavy showers will be over the Spring Burn scar.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

Storm coverage and intensity is expected to decrease from
Wednesday through Friday, as the monsoonal moisture plume is
pushed north and west of the region. There will be enough residual
moisture to support isolated to scattered afternoon and evening
storms each day, with the best coverage of storms moving west
across the higher terrain of the Continental Divide. Storm threats
will include lightning and gusty outflow winds of up to 45 mph,
with locally heavy rainfall and small hail possible with the
stronger storms.

An uptick in storm coverage and rainfall intensity remains in the
offing for Saturday and Sunday, as monsoonal moisture begins to
work back into the region. This will lead to an increasing
potential of flash flooding across the region into early next


Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
possible across the Spring Burn Scar region late this afternoon and
early evening.
