Isolated showers and thunderstorms will be possible across the
mountains today.  A few of these may drift off into the adjacent
plains through this evening though these will quickly diminish in
strength as they move off the mountains. The main threat with
thunderstorms across the mountains today will be lightning and
locally gusty winds up to 45 mph. Across the plains, high based

rainfall.  Snow levels will remain above 11000 feet today with local
accumulations of up to an inch possible across the higher peaks
along the Continental Divide.

Dry humidity values along with breezy to windy conditions this
afternoon will result in an elevated fire danger today.  Fine
vegetation entering greenup should limit the potential for extreme
fire behavior. However pockets of dry fuels may still carry fire and
caution is still advised to avoid fire starts this afternoon and
evening.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

Snow, heavy at times, is expected over the mountains above 10,000
feet Sunday through Wednesday, generally during the afternoon
hours.

Isolated thunderstorms, some severe, are possible over the eastern
plains on Sunday evening. The main risk will be winds up to 60
mph under the strongest storms. There is a smaller chance for
severe criteria hail, but the chance exists, otherwise lightning
and brief moderate to heavy rains are expected.

Daily thunderstorms are possible Wednesday through Friday mainly over
the mountains. An isolated storm may make it over the eastern
plains or over the San Luis Valley during the afternoon hours.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
possible over the mountains along the Continental Divide this
afternoon and tonight.
