⚡️Thunderstorm season is finally here! Today: Isolated to scattered showers & storms - main threat is strong, gusty outlfow winds to ~50 mph. Tuesday: More instability and thus a couple severe storms possible with wind gusts to 60 mph and hail ~1" in diameter. #COwx
Another mild day in store with scattered clouds through the day and the possibility for an odd sprinkle for Park County and Palmer Divide late afternoon/evening.
To celebrate a weekend day with no watches or warnings in effect, we're bringing back one of our favorite graphics! Here's Monday's high temperature forecast for a select number of spots in northeast Colorado. #cowx Special thanks to @NWSAtlanta for the inspiration!
Watching the lunar eclipse tonight? Good news! Satellite imagery this evening shows just a few clouds around the area. Totality will begin at 9:29PM and peaks at 10:11PM! #cowx Want more info? Check out @NASAMoon !
Morning! Warmer today with highs well into the 80's for the lower elevations. A few thunderstorms likely for eastern plains this afternoon/evening, with elevated showers elsewhere (little to no precipitation). Gusty outflow winds will be possible with showers/t-storms. #COwx
For another perspective on the rarity of this event, @NWSSPC has placed most of our forecast area in a Day 2 Extremely Critical risk. Since 2010, this has only happened 1 other time in the Denver metro and a few times further south. PLEASE avoid ANY sparks tomorrow! #COwx #COFire
Those near the #marshallfire , please have a ToGo Kit ready with all your important documents, medications, etc. Anything you need. Follow these tips should an evacuation order be issued for your location. #COwx
It's not often we see "Extreme" fire weather conditions, but Friday will be one of those days! Avoid any and all outdoor activities that may produce a spark. "Let's all do our part - don't let it start!" #COwx
Updated storm total snow map! 15-25" expected across urban corridor with up to 30" in Boulder and Fort Collins. 2 to 4 feet of snow in the foothills. Lower amounts west of Continental Divide and east of DIA. #COwx
And one last look at the visible satellite imagery of this powerful winter storm before dark. #COwx
