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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Severe thunderstorms are forecast to develop over all of the
mountains, the valleys and the I-25 corridor region today. The
greatest severe weather threat will be straight line winds gusting
to 60 to 80 mph. However, in the mountains and valleys (especially
the San Luis Valley), a tornado or two will be possible.

The greatest risk of severe thunderstorms over the interior
mountains and valleys will be between 11 AM and 4 PM today. The
greatest risk for severe thunderstorms along the southern mountains
and I-25 corridor will be between 3 pm and 7 PM.

In addition to the severe thunderstorm threat, all of southeast and
south central Colorado will see strong gusty winds occur most of
today and early this evening. Winds gusting to 40 to 60 mph will be

RED FLAG WARNINGS are in effect for all of the lower elevations
today. Cloud to ground lightning strikes over the region today will
have the potential to cause additional new fires over the area. If
you see smoke, immediately call 911. Be prepared to evacuate quickly
if a fire starts near your area, as the strong winds will cause
any fire to spread rapidly.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

Critical fire weather conditions are expected for most of south
central and southeast Colorado on Sunday and Monday as windy
conditions continue into early week. However, there is some
uncertainty with the extent of critical fire weather conditions on
Monday as a cold front could aid in raising relative humidity values
above critical thresholds. Critical fire weather conditions will
once again be possible Tuesday as gusty north winds and drier air
move back into the region.

Some light snow showers are possible over and near the Palmer Divide
and central mountains Tuesday morning. Later in the week, isolated
thunderstorms are possible on Friday, mainly for the mountains and
high valleys.


Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
required today into early this evening. Activation may start as
early as late morning and last into the evening.
