Colorado can’t seem to dodge tornadoes.

A tornado watch has been posted for all of northeastern Colorado, including the Denver area, and most of the Eastern Plains.

The watch, posted by the National Weather Service, covers 18 counties: Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas, Elbert, Jefferson, Kit Carson, Larimer, Lincoln, Logan, Morgan, Phillips, Sedgwick, Washington, Weld and Yuma.

The watch, which expires at 10 p.m., also includes portions of Wyoming, Kansas and Nebraska.

Severe thunderstorms also will be a threat this afternoon, the weather service warns, and weather on the plains could produce “supercell” thunderstorms.

Storms east of Fort Morgan could unleash 2-inch diameter hail after 4 p.m., and winds could gust up to 60 mph, according to the weather service.

Storms with small hail and brief heavy rains could hit the metro area this afternoon.

Storms north and east of the metro area should increase in intensity into the afternoon and linger into the night, the weather service said.
