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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Scattered rain and high elevation snow showers will be possible
across the mountains, valleys and I-25 corridor today and tonight,
with isolated thunderstorms over the mountains this afternoon and
evening. The best chance for precipitation will occur tonight, with
the central mountains and Pikes Peak region most favored for
measurable rain and snow. Accumulating snowfall will be possible
tonight over the higher mountains above 9000 feet, with one to four
inches expected over the peaks of the Sawatch and Mosquito Ranges
and over Pikes Peak by early Monday morning. The main risk with any
thunderstorms today and tonight will be lightning, gusty winds to 45
mph, and some small, pea size hail.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

An unseasonably cool and unsettled weather pattern remains in
place through Tuesday, as a broad upper trough slowly digs south
and east across the Rockies. This will keep chances of showers and
thunderstorms across south central and southeast Colorado, with
the best chances of widespread precipitation on Tuesday. Temperature
profiles also support the potential for accumulating snowfall
across the higher terrain, generally at or above 9000 feet, both
Monday and Tuesday.

Drier and much warmer conditions are expected to return for the
later half of the work week, with chances of afternoon showers and
thunderstorms over the higher terrain returning into the upcoming
Memorial Day weekend.


Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will
be possible over portions of the region.
