On Friday afternoon, the National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a warning for severe thunderstorms along the I-25 corridor, from Greeley to Castle Rock, extending into the late evening hours. These storms are expected to bring large hail, with the primary threat being severe weather east of Denver.

According to the Storm Prediction Center, severe thunderstorms are likely to develop by late afternoon, potentially spreading northward toward the I-76 corridor as the evening progresses. The highest chance of anything severe happening will be over the Palmer Divide, Limon, and possibly as far north as Akron.
