Most tornadoes in Colorado occur over the Eastern Plains and are on the lower end of the Enhanced Fujita Scale of tornado intensity. 

Colorado is not located in the normal “Tornado Alley”, but Weld County actually has the number one rank for the most weak tornadoes (EF0, EF-1) anywhere in the United States. 

There are an average of around 31 weak tornadoes (EF0, EF1) each year across Colorado. Most of those happen in the Eastern Plains. 

For the most part, tornadoes in Colorado occur in the afternoons with the development of the afternoon thunderstorms.
