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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Scattered thunderstorms will form over the mountains early this
afternoon with most of the activity occurring north of highway 50.
The thunderstorm activity will then move east and move across the
greater Pikes Peak region during the mid to late afternoon time
period. The storms will then continue to move across the far
eastern plains this evening, with most of the activity remaining
north of a line from La junta to Springfield.

Strong gusty winds of 45 to 55 mph will be possible, with local
gusts to 60 mph possible, especially over the far eastern plains.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

Isolated thunderstorms, a few possibly severe, are possible
across the eastern plains Sunday, and again on Monday. Additional
showers and thunderstorms are expected across portions of the
higher terrain and plains Tuesday and Tuesday night. Snowfall
across the higher terrain will be minor, with the risk of severe
weather anticipated to be low at this time.

Periods of warm, dry, and windy conditions are expected next
week. At this time, highest confidence for these conditions to
occur is on Sunday and again Monday.


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