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

.DAY ONE...EARLY MONDAY MORNING

SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE TO DIMINISH
THROUGH THE LATE NIGHT HOURS...THOUGH A FEW THUNDERSTORMS MAY
LINGER OVER THE MOUNTAINS AND THE FAR SOUTHERN PLAINS THROUGH
EARLY MONDAY MORNING. ALTHOUGH HEAVY RAINFALL IS NO LONGER
ANTICIPATED...LOCALIZED FLASH FLOODING WILL REMAIN POSSIBLE DUE TO
SATURATED SOILS FROM PREVIOUS HEAVY RAIN.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY

THE RISK FOR HEAVY RAINFALL AND FLASH FLOODING WILL CONTINUE
THROUGH THE WEEK. SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS THUNDERSTORMS WILL OCCUR
OVER THE MOUNTAINS EACH AFTERNOON...WITH STORMS SPREADING ACROSS
THE ADJACENT HIGH VALLEYS AND PLAINS THROUGH THE EVENING HOURS. AS
STORMS MOVE INTO THE I-25 CORRIDOR AND SOUTHEAST PLAINS...THEY MAY
BRIEFLY BECOME SEVERE WITH THE RISK FOR ONE INCH DIAMETER
HAIL...AND WIND GUSTS UP TO 60 MPH...ALONG WITH CLOUD TO GROUND
LIGHTNING. THESE COULD MERGE INTO THUNDERSTORM COMPLEXES...WHICH
COULD BRING HEAVY RAINFALL TO PORTIONS OF THE SOUTHEAST PLAINS.
THIS THREAT LOOKS GREATEST FOR TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY NIGHT. WITH
THE POTENTIAL FOR A MULTI-DAY RAINFALL EPISODE...IT IS POSSIBLE
THAT PORTIONS OF THE ARKANSAS AND PURGATORIE RIVERS...ALONG WITH
THEIR TRIBUTARY CREEKS AND STREAMS MAY EXPERIENCE FLOODING AT
TIMES...THOUGH THIS WILL BE HIGHLY DEPENDENT ON WHERE THE HEAVIEST
RAIN OCCURS.

LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE ACROSS THE SOUTHWEST AND
CENTRAL MOUNTAINS DURING THIS PERIOD...BUT THE RISK FOR FLASH
FLOODING MAY NOT BE AS GREAT COMPARED TO THE SOUTHEAST MOUNTAINS
AND PLAINS.

AREA BURN SCARS...URBAN AREAS...AND STEEP TERRAIN WILL BE MOST
VULNERABLE TO THE FLASH FLOOD RISK.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

WEATHER CONDITIONS THAT MEET REPORTING CRITERIA FOR SPOTTERS WILL
BE POSSIBLE THROUGH EARLY MONDAY MORNING.
