DENVER -- A Pinpoint Weather Alert Day has been issued for Wednesday afternoon and evening due to scattered storms along the Front Range and Plains.
The timing looks to impact the Palmer Divide and Pikes Peak region during the evening commute with another round of late-evening storms that will be more likely on the northern Front Range.
Storms have potential to turn severe with a marginal risk in place. Heavy rainfall and flash flooding will be the main threats, but there could also be hail and gusty winds in stronger storms that develop.
As always, lightning is a threat.
A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect for the entire Front Range until 9 p.m. Wednesday.
