NE Colorado under ‘enhanced risk’ of severe storms with large, damaging hail

DENVER — Large, destructive hail is possible across northeastern Colorado as severe weather is expected to form during the late afternoon and evening hours on Sunday.

A swath of the northeastern corner of the state is under an enhanced risk of seeing a severe storm dropping destructive hail larger than 2 inches, or larger than golf balls.

The National Weather Service (NWS) in Boulder said the higher risk of severe weather grows east from Sterling to the Kansas and Nebraska borders.

“Damaging winds, very heavy rain, and an isolated tornado will also be possible from storms that develop over far northeast Colorado,” said the NWS.

Denver’s weather on Sunday should bring mostly isolated showers, with the day starting out with plenty of sunshine.

“Increasing cloud cover and gusty winds expected later today. Breezy by noon and Denver will be 83 degrees with mostly cloudy skies by late afternoon,” said Denver7 weather forecaster Katie LaSalle. “The risk of any severe weather in Denver and out west will be low,”A few showers and isolated storms are possible in the mountains and across northwestern Colorado.
