Wild weather is on the way to Colorado bringing another round of thunderstorms to parts of the state accompanied by heavy rain, damaging winds, lightning, and large hailstones varying in size.
Front Range storms expected to hit on Tuesday afternoon over the mountains and foothills, will likely spread east across the Urban Corridor and Eastern Plains late afternoon and evening. The greatest risk is hail that could reach golf ball size and winds gusting up to 70 mph.
"These storms will be capable of producing large hail and damaging winds, along with frequent lightning," warned the National Weather Service (NWS) of Boulder.
