DENVER (KDVR) -- Strong storms could sweep through Colorado on Wednesday, leading to strong wind and large hail in some areas.

Because of this, a Pinpoint Weather Alert Day has been issued for Wednesday.

Which areas are at risk?

The Denver metro area and much of the Front Range are under a marginal risk for severe weather on Wednesday. The Eastern Plains are under a slight risk, which is one level higher than marginal.

According to the National Weather Service, a marginal risk means isolated thunderstorms are possible and a slight risk means scattered severe storms are possible.

Pinpoint Weather Meteorologist Liz McGiffin said the Eastern Plains could see the potential for strong wind gusts and large hail with the Wednesday storms.

Severe weather outlook for Colorado on Wednesday, May 29. Denver and the I-25 corridor is under a marginal risk, while the eastern plains are under a slight risk.

Timing and impact

McGiffin said Wednesday will start with sunshine in the morning. However, the risk of storms will increase as the day goes on and the temperatures heat up.

Clouds will start to increase in the afternoon around 2 p.m., which is when the Denver metro could see some showers.

The strongest storms will stay in the eastern part of the state near the Kansas and Nebraska borders and could hit around 6-7 p.m. Wednesday, McGiffin said.
