Severe thunderstorms will be possible Friday and Saturday across
the southeast plains with the primary risks being large hail,

thunderstorms will be possible over the mountains both days where
the primary storm risks will be lightning and localized wind
gusts up to 50 mph.

Showers and thunderstorms will be possible again on Sunday though
weaker winds aloft may decrease storm strengths some. Locally
heavy rainfall and burn scar flash flooding will be the primary
storm risks. However, hail to around 1 inch in diameter and
damaging winds will also be possible for the southeast mountains
and plains depending on the amount of instability present.

Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms will spread across
southern Colorado for Monday and Tuesday. Locally heavy rainfall,
small hail and gusty outflow winds will be possible both day with
some light snow accumulations possible above 10000 feet. Burn scar
flash flooding will be particularly elevated these days.

on Wednesday, however are expected to be less numerous in

and Raton Mesa.
