...Strong storms possible over Denver Metro Area and areas north
and east this afternoon...

This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Low clouds and patchy fog and drizzle will continue to diminish
late this morning across the area.

Attention switches to this afternoon when the clouds will burn
off, sufficient heating and moisture will combine with a
developing Denver Cyclone. Scattered thunderstorms will develop
near the convergence zone south of this cyclone as well as over
the Front Range foothills. As of now, this looks to occur by
2 pm before spreading northeast across the rest of the plains. A
few storms may become severe with large hail up to 2 inches in
diameter along with damaging winds and heavy rain. The convergence
zone and shear above this will also allow for a chance of an
isolated tornado or two. The best chance for severe storms will
stretch along and north of a line from south Denver to Akron.
Over the far northeast plains, the airmass will be more stable
with lesser chances of a severe storm, however the synoptic
situation and convective activity pushing east may allow the
storms to last through the evening. Expect another push of low
clouds and patchy fog towards Tuesday morning over the plains.

Further west of the Continental Divide, the airmass will be warm
and dry with no thunderstorms expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected on Tuesday, with
some late day storms on the plains capable of large hail, strong
winds and locally heavy rainfall. The heavy rainfall may produce
flooding in low lying areas such as along drainages and dry
washes. Storm chances will decrease on Wednesday, then dry and
warmer Thursday and Friday. Storms may return for the weekend
with the passage of a weak upper level weather disturbance.


Spotter activation may be needed today, after 1pm.
