...A WET AND UNSETTLED WEEK AHEAD WITH POTENTIAL FOR LOCALLY
HEAVY RAINFALL...

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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

A SHORTWAVE WILL PASS OVER THE STATE TODAY WHILE A COLD FRONT
PUSHES SOUTH THROUGH THE AFTERNOON. INCREASED MOISTURE TODAY WILL
ALLOW FOR A MORE WIDESPREAD SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM COVERAGE WITH
GUSTY OUTFLOW WINDS...THOUGH WEAKER THAN YESTERDAY...AND SMALL
HAIL POSSIBLE OUT OF THE STRONGER STORMS. SEVERE STRENGTH THREAT
IS LOW HOWEVER. THERE WILL BE A BETTER CHANCE FOR LOCALLY HEAVY
RAIN...ESPECIALLY THIS EVENING AND TONIGHT OVER THE PLAINS AS
UPSLOPE FLOW INCREASES. LOW CLOUDS AND PATCHY FOG WILL LIKELY FORM
AFTER MIDNIGHT...ESPECIALLY IN THE FOOTHILLS AND URBAN
CORRIDOR...MOTORISTS SHOULD USE CAUTION IN THESE AREAS WHERE
VISIBILITY MAY BE REDUCED.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY

A MOIST AND UNSETTLED WEATHER PATTERN WILL REMAIN OVER THE
FORECAST AREA THROUGH MUCH OF THE WEEK WITH POTENTIAL FOR LOCALLY
HEAVY RAINFALL. SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL OCCUR
NEARLY EVERY DAY...WITH THE MOST WIDESPREAD SHOWER AND STORM
COVERAGE EXPECTED LATE MONDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.

LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL WILL BE POSSIBLE ACROSS THE FRONT RANGE
FOOTHILLS AND I-25 CORRIDOR MONDAY AFTERNOON AND CONTINUING INTO
MONDAY EVENING. THE MAIN FOCUS FOR HEAVIER RAIN MAY SHIFT EASTWARD
ONTO THE EASTERN PLAINS MONDAY NIGHT INTO TUESDAY. AT THIS
TIME...IT APPEARS THAT MAINLY BURN SCARS WOULD BE MORE SUSCEPTIBLE
TO ANY POTENTIAL FLOODING ISSUES.

THE THREAT OF SEVERE WEATHER WILL BE LIMITED BY MARGINAL INSTABILITY
IN THE ATMOSPHERE. HOWEVER...AN ISOLATED SEVERE STORM OR TWO WILL
STILL BE POSSIBLE ON TUESDAY WHEN WIND SHEAR INCREASES.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED TODAY OR TONIGHT.
