This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of central...east central...south central and southeast Colorado. .DAY ONE...Tonight Isolated thunderstorms will remain possible across the Southeast Plains through the overnight hours. The main threats from these storms will be lightning and gusty winds to around 45 mph. Small pea sized hail may also be possible with a few of the storms. .DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday Isolated to scattered thunderstorms will be possible Friday across the southeast mountains and plains with the potential for a few severe thunderstorms across the southeast plains along and east of I-25. Large hail and damaging winds will be the primary storm risks along with lightning and locally heavy rainfall. Meanwhile, gusty winds, low humidity values and dry fuels will lead to high fire danger across the mountains and valleys on Friday where critical fire weather conditions will favor rapid rates of fire growth and spread. Any activities which could start a fire should be avoided. Isolated afternoon and evening thunderstorms will be possible for Saturday across the southeast mountains and plains, though limited moisture should result in weaker storms with gusty winds and small hail possible. A more potent storm system will move into the area for Sunday bringing the threat for another round of isolated to scattered afternoon and overnight showers and thunderstorms to the central and southeast mountains and plains. Severe thunderstorms will once again be possible across the southeast plains with large hail and damaging winds the most likely storm threats. Isolated thunderstorms will be possible for Monday with drier conditions expected for Tuesday and Wednesday. .SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
