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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Smoke from wildfires to our north will continue to impact air
quality through the rest of this morning and potentially into this
afternoon.  Public Health recommends that anyone with heart disease,
respiratory illness, the very young, or the very old limit time
outdoors. For everyone else, Public Health recommends limiting
prolonged or heavy physical exertion while outdoors and take
frequent breaks. If the visibility is less than 5 miles, smoke has
reached unhealthy levels in your location.

Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected over
and near the mountains this afternoon. Storms will be capable of
producing outflow winds to 45 mph, small hail, lightning, and heavy
rainfall. Flash flooding could be possible over burn scars and
vulnerable areas if hit by multiple storms.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Showers and thunderstorms are expected Thursday through Saturday
across the higher terrain. Storms on Friday and Saturday will be
capable of producing heavy rainfall, with an elevated flash flood
risk on area burn scars and flood prone areas. More isolated
shower and thunderstorm activity is possible Sunday through
Tuesday across the higher terrain.

Hot temperatures return to the Plains Sunday through Tuesday, with
highs exceeding 100 degrees. Those who sensitive to heat should
begin preparations for a prolonged period of high heat.


Weather spotters will not be needed today or tonight.
