Severe Weather Returns to Start the Week May 7, 2017

After a few days of inactive severe weather across the country, severe weather will return back to the Central U.S. for the start of the new week. Isolated to scattered severe thunderstorms are possible from portions of the central Rockies into eastern Colorado, south into eastern New Mexico on Monday.

On Monday, the Storm Prediction Center has placed portions of eastern Colorado under a “slight” risk of severe weather. The main threats will be large hail and damaging winds, however, there will be a spatially confined tornado risk over northeast Colorado and near the Palmer Divide. The risk of severe weather also stretches south into New Mexico, western Kansas, and into southwest Nebraska.

On Tuesday, this slow-to-evolve weather pattern will place much of the same areas from Monday, under a “marginal” risk of severe weather, as a stationary frontal boundary develops across the region. Thunderstorms will develop by Tuesday afternoon, and will have the potential to produce large hail and damaging wind gusts.

By Wednesday, an upper-level low will move into the region. As it does, a cold front will be sweeping across western and central portions of Texas and Oklahoma, and a warm front will stall to the north in Kansas. This will pose a risk of severe weather from Kansas south into northern Texas.
