This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central
Colorado.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Scattered thunderstorms will develop by early afternoon in the
foothills and along the I-25 corridor. These storms will then move
east southeast across the plains by late afternoon into the early
evening hours. A few severe thunderstorms will occur and may
produce hail up to 2 inches in diameter along with wind gusts to
70 mph. Although the tornado threat is low, an isolated weak
tornado can`t be ruled out.

Otherwise, scattered showers and thunderstorms over the higher
terrain may produce wind gusts to 50 mph along with some small
hail.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Scattered late day showers and thunderstorms are forecast for
Thursday. A few of the storms may become severe, with the best
chances for severe storms on the eastern plains, east of the I-25
urban corridor. Friday through the weekend will be warm and dry,
then isolated to widely scattered showers and thunderstorms,
mainly over the high terrain, return early next week.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will be needed after 2 PM.

Boulder-Weld-Adams-Denver-Jefferson-Douglas-Arapahoe-
Broomfield-Larimer-
410 PM MDT Tue Aug 4 2020

...OZONE ACTION DAY ALERT FROM 400 PM TUESDAY UNTIL 400 PM
WEDNESDAY...

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has
issued the following...

WHAT...Ozone Action Day Alert.

WHERE...Douglas, Jefferson, Denver, western Arapahoe, western
Adams, Broomfield, Boulder, Larimer, and Weld Counties

WHEN...400 PM Tuesday August 04 to 400 PM Wednesday August 05

IMPACTS...Ozone Action Day Alert is now in effect for the Front
Range Urban Corridor. Requests to limit driving of non-ZEV
vehicles (i.e., gas or diesel) are now in effect until at least 4
p.m. Wednesday, August 5, 2020.  Ozone concentrations are expected
to be in the Moderate to Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups range on
Tuesday and Wednesday. Ozone concentrations in the Unhealthy for
Sensitive Groups category will be most likely during the afternoon
and evening hours in the southern and western portions of the
Denver Metro area, including Highlands Ranch and Golden. For areas
included in this advisory that are not expected to reach the
Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups (USG) air quality designation, we
request that activities, such as driving non- ZEV vehicles (i.e.,
gas or diesel), be reduced to lessen the impacts on neighboring
air quality. Additional air pollution in this region may directly
worsen air quality or contribute to precursors which may also
adversely affect air quality.  For Colorado air quality
conditions, forecasts and advisories, visit:
https://www.colorado.gov/airquality/colorado_summary.aspx

HEALTH INFORMATION...Increasing likelihood of respiratory symptoms
and breathing discomfort in active children and adults and people
with lung disease, such as asthma. Active children and adults, and
people with lung disease, such as asthma, should reduce prolonged
or heavy outdoor exertion.
