Another round of severe afternoon storms in Wednesday forecast

DENVER — Another round of powerful storms are expected to hit Colorado on Wednesday. It would be the second day of a stormy stretch that might cause some damage in the Denver metro area.

A neighborhood in Englewood saw a little bit of everything Tuesday afternoon. First came the rain. Then the pingpong-size hail. The storm resulted in leaves and branches scattered across the ground.

With more storms expected Wednesday afternoon, it’s probably a good idea to move your car into a garage if you have one. As for your home, doing the basic things such as maintaining trees around you, covering your garden and cleaning out gutters can avoid issues later on.

If you do suspect roof damage, your best bet is to call a certified roofer and have them inspect it. Avoid that one that come to your door that ask for money upfront. Also a good reminder is to check your insurance policy for your home and car.

Light rain showers are possible Wednesday morning, with storms developing in the afternoon and expected to be more widespread than Tuesday’s round. There is a slight risk of severe storms, with hail, gusty winds and even small tornadoes are possible.

Storms likely will develop between noon and 3 p.m., with an increase in coverage area from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. before winding down

Thursday and Friday will see even more of a threat of the slow-moving storms that could produce flash flooding. Saturday has a good chance of storms and some possible Sunday, with Memorial Day expected to be drier.
