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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Isolated thunderstorms are expected this afternoon and evening over
the mountains, the Palmer Divide and near the New Mexico border,
with one or two storms reaching the far southeast corner of the
state late in the day. Storms today will be fairly weak, and the
main threats from any activity will be cloud to ground lightning
and gusty winds to 50 mph.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

Scattered showers and thunderstorms can be expected over and near
the higher terrain Wednesday and Thursday afternoon, with storms
spreading east across the southeast Plains through the late afternoon
and evening hours. A few strong to severe storms will be possible
across the I-25 Corridor through the far southeast Plains on Wednesday,
with large hail up to an inch in diameter, damaging wind gusts up
to 60 mph and locally heavy rainfall the main storm threats. Locally
heavy rainfall will also lead to the potential for flash flooding
on Wednesday and Thursday, especially if storms develop or move
across the Spring, Junkins or Hayden Pass burn scars. Further west,
storms are expected to be higher based on Wednesday and Thursday,
with lightning and gusty outflow winds the main risk from storms.

Warmer and drier weather looks to take hold once again for Friday
and into the weekend, with more isolated afternoon and evening
storms expected across the area. The main storm risks will be
lightning and gusty outflow winds.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Weather spotters will not be needed today or tonight.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Near record high temperatures are expected again for this

become severe over the far northeast corner of the state. Large
hail and damaging winds will be possible. Otherwise, the storms
will be slow moving which may lead to some localized flooding in
some areas as well. Across the higher terrain the storms will be
high based and will produce gusty winds with light rainfall.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

Scattered strong to severe thunderstorms are expected to form
Wednesday afternoon and early evening along the Front Range. These
storms will shift southeast onto the near by eastern plains.

Scattered thunderstorms are expected to form again Thursday
