Storms Thundering Across the Front Range
UPDATED 10:30 PM EDT, July 10, 2013
UPDATED By WeatherBug Sr. Meteorologist, John Bateman
An unseasonably strong cold front advancing into the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley has been the kicker for strong and severe thunderstorms across the Northeast, Great Lakes and Midwest. Meanwhile, a fresh storm will tag onto the end of the front to produce thunderstorms in the Front Range. Not to be outdone, strong-to-severe storms could also pop up in southern Arizona as well.
For the nighttime hours, storms will form off the eastern slope of the Rockies and slide into the western Plains. Denver`s eastern suburbs and parts of western Kansas could see a brief burst of wind or hail with any storm that forms. Because of this, a Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect from eastern Colorado and far western Nebraska and Kansas. Trinidad, Colo., and Goodland and Garden City, Kan., are included in the watch.
Farther southwest, thunderstorms are also expected to develop across southern Arizona tonight. Damaging winds and flash flood-inducing downpours will be the main threats.
