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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Strong to severe thunderstorms are possible over the southern
I-25 corridor and the far eastern plains this afternoon into the
evening. Main risks will be 1-2 inch hail, 60-70 mph winds, and
isolated weak landspout tornados under the strongest storms.
Weaker storms are possible over the mountain valleys and the
northern I-25 corridor.

Flash flooding is possible over the Spring, Junkins, Decker, and
Hayden Pass burn scars, with an emphasis for the Spring burn scar,
as strong thunderstorms develop over the mountains.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

Strong to marginally severe thunderstorms will be possible Tuesday
across the plains and the eastern mountains. Hail the size of
quarters and wind gusts to 60 mph will be possible. An isolated
tornado cannot be ruled out.

Heavy rain is likely to occur across the plains and east slopes of
the mountains tomorrow. Burn scar flooding will be possible. In
addition, flash flooding may also occur in urban areas.

On Wednesday, scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms are
expected. Small hail and gusty winds will be possible.

On Thursday, the dryline is expected to become active. There will be
a chance of severe thunderstorms along the Colorado and Kansas state
line during the afternoon and evening. Large hail, damaging winds
and isolated tornadoes will be possible.

From Friday into the weekend, the potential will exist for an active
weather pattern to occur as a deep trough of low pressure develops
over the Western United States. This trough will have the potential
to bring abundant low level moisture onto the plains. In the
meantime, this trough will bring strong winds throughout the
atmosphere. The combination of the strong winds and abundant low
level moisture will allow for the potential for strong to severe
storm with heavy rain to occur.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

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