Your Storm Center 7 team still agrees that an isolated severe storm or two will be possible as we head towards early evening. 

We will likely see storms first fire north of Interstate 70 then push southeast through the evening.

The greatest threat from these storms will be from strong winds and large hail, along with locally heavy rain and lightning. Driving in the evening hours may become problematic with the threat for severe storms and heavy downpours reducing visibility and creating ponding on the roads.
