Given the ingredients in place over southern Colorado today, one or two severe thunderstorms are likely to occur.
One area of concern is a storm possibly developing over the Palmer Divide or Rampart Range between 1:45 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. and moving south/southeast over eastern sections of the metro area.
Should this occur, this storm could produce some very large hail. The storm, should it develop, would end up moving toward Pueblo.
- Eastern mountains: 1 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
- Colorado Springs and vicinity: 2:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.
- Pueblo and vicinity: 4 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
- Southern I-25 corridor: 3 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.
- Eastern plains: 5 p.m. – 11 p.m.
- Hail 1″ – 2″
- Straight-line wind with gusts near 60 mph
- Isolated tornadoes
- Heavy rain, flash flooding (burn scars, urban trouble spots)
Storms over the eastern plains this evening are likely to develop into a line or cluster, and would be most likely to cause some flooding or straight-line wind issues versus large hail.
