This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of central...east central...south central and southeast Colorado. .DAY ONE...Today and Tonight Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are expected today and this evening, with the best chances being from the I-25 corridor counties and westward. Lightning will be the main storm threat. However, some of the stronger storms will be capable of producing locally heavy rain and hail up to the size of nickels. Locally heavy rain could bring the risk of flash flooding, particularly over burn scars and urban areas. .DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday Areas of heavy rainfall will be possible over southern Colorado Tuesday through Saturday. Precipitation chances and the heavy rain potential will increase and expand, to encompass most of the eastern slopes and plains. As the potential for heavy rain returns to southern Colorado, so will the potential for flooding. This will be particularly true across burn scars and urban areas where the ground is most impervious. However, flooding will be possible anywhere that heavy rain falls for too long. .SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT... Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be possible this afternoon and evening, mainly from the I-25 corridor counties and westward.
