Isolated severe storms in city; tornadoes and egg-sized hail possible on Eastern Plains


Denver is in the path of a strong storm Wednesday that could bring hail and strong winds to Front Range communities and egg-sized hail and tornadoes to the Eastern Plains, forecasters said.

“Today’s severe thunderstorm threat focuses on the eastern Colorado plains. Very large hail, damaging winds and even a couple tornadoes possible,” the National Weather Service in Boulder said.

The biggest threat for severe weather includes hail up to 2 inches in diameter and 60 mph winds east of Fort Morgan and Limon, the NWS said.

The high temperature Wednesday in Denver should be about 89 degrees, the NWS said. There’s a 20 percent chance of rain and thunderstorms after 1 p.m., it said.

Thursday is expected to be sunny and hot with a high temperature of around 92 degrees. It could be windy, with gusts of up to 22 mph, forecasters said. In the evening, there is a 20 percent chance of rain and thunderstorms before midnight.
