The National Weather Service issued a hazardous weather outlook for several parts of Colorado on Tuesday, calling for large hail, 50 mph winds, and torrential downpours.

Thunderstorms rolling in late Tuesday afternoon and early evening, September 10, across northeast, north central, south central, and southeast Colorado will produce heavy rain, lightning, and strong gusty winds. A few storms could approach severe limits, with the main threats consisting of nickel-sized hail or larger and 50 mph winds along the Front Range urban corridor and portions of Baca, Prowers, eastern Las Animas, and eastern Kiowa counties from this afternoon into this evening, September 10. Storms will diminish by late evening.

Snow is also on the horizon for the Centennial State. Cooler temperatures and precipitation could bring a dusting of snow to higher elevations possibly this week and next.

Stay away from windows and remain indoors during wild weather in Colorado. If you get caught in a hail storm while driving, pull over to a safe place. Hail is blinding and may shatter side and back windshields. Stay safe out there and be prepared for wild weather in Colorado.
