THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTHEAST AND NORTH CENTRAL
COLORADO.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

THE UPPER RIDGE WILL BE EAST OF COLORADO ALLOWING FOR MORE OF A
SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW ALOFT OVER THE REGION. TEMPERATURES WILL BE
SIMILAR TO YESTERDAY WITH ANOTHER ROUND OF AFTERNOON AND EVENING
THUNDERSTORMS EXPECTED. THE BEST CHANCE WILL BE IN THE MOUNTAINS
AND OVER THE FAR NORTHEAST PLAINS OF COLORADO. SOME DOWNSLOPE AND
DRYING ALONG THE FRONT RANGE WILL ALLOW FOR HIGH BASED STORMS
WHICH WILL LIKELY PRODUCE GUSTY WINDS TO 45 MPH WITH JUST SOME
LIGHT RAINFALL. FURTHER EAST THERE WILL BE BETTER LOW LEVEL
MOISTURE WITH A CHANCE OF SOME STRONG...POTENTIALLY SEVERE...
THUNDERSTORMS...MAINLY EAST OF LINE FROM AROUND NEW RAYMER TO FORT
MORGAN TO LIMON.

THE OVERALL THREAT HOWEVER IS LOW. THE MAIN THREAT FROM THESE
STORMS WOULD BE HAIL UP TO ONE INCH IN DIAMETER AND WIND GUSTS IN
EXCESS OF 60 MPH.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY

SCATTERED SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECT FRIDAY AND
SATURDAY. A STRONGER STORM SYSTEM WILL MOVE ACROSS THE REGION
SUNDAY. THIS SYSTEM WILL LIKELY BRING A PERIOD OF RAIN WITH SNOW
IN THE MOUNTAINS AND FOOTHILLS. SNOWFALL AMOUNTS COULD POSSIBLY
BE SIGNIFICANT SUNDAY AND SUNDAY NIGHT IN THE FRONT RANGE
FOOTHILLS AND MOUNTAINS.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED TODAY OR TONIGHT.
