Keep your eyes to the sky as severe weather hammers the Front Range and eastern Colorado. Afternoon and evening storms are likely to bring the threat of large hail, damaging wind, lightning and tornadoes, according to the Colorado weather forecast.
Storms will first bubble up across the Front Range foothills and then race across the Eastern Plains by late Wednesday afternoon. The active weather will continue through Wednesday night. Daytime highs will be in the mid-70s with east southeast winds gusting up to 30 mph in the metro area.
The threat for strong storms will continue into Thursday for parts of the Front Range. A slight risk for storms producing large hail, damaging wind and isolated tornadoes will stretch from Denver into southeast Colorado Thursday afternoon.
