DENVER (CBS4) – Thunderstorms moving northeast over the metro area Tuesday afternoon may produce isolated downburst winds over 45 mph. There could also be isolated hail but any damaging hail should be very limited.
Similar to Monday, scattered thunderstorms are expected through early evening on Tuesday. The storms will initiate over the central and southern mountains of Colorado and then move northeast toward the Denver metro area. As the storms move northeast, they will strengthen but most will not become severe.
All locations along and to the east of I-25 in Colorado are under a “marginal risk” for severe weather Tuesday afternoon which is the lowest possible threat level. One area that may see more thunderstorm activity than others is the eastern half of the Palmer Divide including Elbert and Lincoln Counties and the cities of Kiowa and Limon.
Meanwhile Tuesday will be another warm day almost statewide. High temperatures in the Denver metro area will be in the lower 80s again which is slightly above normal for the first week in June.
A better chance for afternoon rain arrives on Wednesday but the already limited chance for severe weather diminishes even more.
