Thunderstorms are forming and intensifying along the Front Range from central Colorado to northern New Mexico into SW Kansas and Oklahoma. As the atmosphere heats up, the current cap will break, allowing strong to severe storms to develop.

Key Points:

  • Hail Threat: Large hail, potentially over 2 inches, likely where supercells form.
  • Wind Threat: Severe winds expected due to strong downbursts.
  • Storm Evolution: Storms will likely merge into clusters by evening, increasing the wind threat.
