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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Isolated thunderstorms will be possible over the region this
afternoon and evening. One or two storms could be strong along the
Colorado and Kansas border, with wind gusts to 60 mph and hail up to
1 inch in diameter. Over the remainder of the region, gusty winds
to 45 mph and dangerous cloud to ground lightning will be
possible with any thunderstorm activity.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Afternoon and evening thunderstorms will remain possible Friday
and Saturday, with the best coverage expected over and near the
higher terrain on Saturday. The main threats from storms will be
cloud to ground lightning and gusty winds up to 50 mph, with small
hail and locally heavy rainfall possible with the strongest storms.
There will also be a threat of flash flooding, if the strong storms
form or move across the Spring, Decker, Junkins, and Hayden Pass
burn scars.

Critical fire weather conditions will be possible across portions
of southern Colorado Friday and Saturday, with critical fire weather
conditions expected across most of south central and southeast
Colorado Sunday and Monday, as breezy to windy conditions develop
across the region into early next week.

Over the mountains, temperatures are expected to remain warm for the
next several days, with overnight lows staying above freezing. This
will enhance the melting of the higher elevation snow pack, with
increased flows and speeds expected in area rivers and streams.


Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
possible along the far eastern Colorado counties late this afternoon
and early evening.
