THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR PORTIONS OF CENTRAL...EAST
CENTRAL...SOUTH CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST COLORADO.

.DAY ONE...TONIGHT

MOIST SOUTHERLY FLOW ALOFT...ALONG WITH SEVERAL WEATHER
DISTURBANCES EMBEDDED WITHIN THE FLOW...WILL ALLOW FOR SCATTERED
TO NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO CONTINUE TO DEVELOP AND
MOVE ACROSS THE AREA TONIGHT. THESE STORMS WILL PRODUCE PERIODS OF
MODERATE TO HEAVY RAINFALL...AND BRING THE POTENTIAL FOR FLASH
FLOODING...ESPECIALLY TO AREAS OVER AND NEAR THE WALDO CANYON AND
BLACK FOREST BURN SCARS IN EL PASO AND TELLER COUNTIES.

OTHER THREATS FROM THUNDERSTORMS TONIGHT WILL BE LIGHTNING AND
LOCALLY GUSTY WINDS UP TO 40 MPH...WITH SOME OF THE STRONGER
STORMS ALSO BEING CAPABLE OF PRODUCING SMALL HAIL UP TO 1/2 INCH
IN DIAMETER.

THE HIGH MOUNTAINS AREAS...MAINLY ABOVE 11000 FEET...WILL ALSO
SEE SNOW ACCUMULATIONS OF UP TO A FEW INCHES OVERNIGHT.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY

SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE ACROSS
SOUTH CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST COLORADO ON TUESDAY. STRONG TO SEVERE
THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE TUESDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING
ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE SOUTHEAST PLAINS WHERE HAIL UP TO AROUND 1
INCH IN DIAMETER...WIND GUSTS TO AROUND 60 MPH...AND HEAVY RAINFALL
WILL BE THE PRIMARY STORM THREATS.

ELSEWHERE...THUNDERSTORM THREATS WILL BE LIGHTNING...SMALL HAIL UP
TO 1/2 INCH IN DIAMETER...WIND GUSTS UP TO 40 MPH...AND HEAVY
RAINFALL. FLASH FLOODING WILL REMAIN POSSIBLE...PARTICULARLY IF
STORMS IMPACT ONE OF THE BURN SCARS. SNOW LEVELS WILL REMAIN ABOVE
11000 FEET WITH THIS STORM SYSTEM...AND THE HIGHER PEAKS ABOVE
THIS ELEVATION COULD PICK ADDITIONAL ACCUMULATIONS OF UP TO SEVERAL
INCHES THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT.

SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE AGAIN WEDNESDAY
AFTERNOON AND EVENING. ALTHOUGH THEY ARE EXPECTED TO BE LESS
WIDESPREAD...AND NOT QUITE AS STRONG...THEY WILL STILL BE CAPABLE
OF PRODUCING LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL WHICH COULD CAUSE RUN-OFF PROBLEMS
SHOULD THEY IMPACT AREA BURN SCARS.

THE DRYING TREND IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE INTO THURSDAY...THOUGH
ISOLATED TO SCATTERED AFTERNOON AND EVENING THUNDERSTORMS WILL
STILL BE POSSIBLE ACROSS THE MOUNTAIN AREAS. ANOTHER UPSWING IN
PRECIPITATION WILL BE POSSIBLE FOR FRIDAY AS ANOTHER SYSTEM
MOVES ACROSS COLORADO. DRIER WEATHER RETURNS BY EARLY NEXT WEEK.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

WEATHER CONDITIONS THAT MEET REPORTING CRITERIA FOR SPOTTERS WILL
BE POSSIBLE TONIGHT OVER MOST OF SOUTHERN COLORADO.
