National Weather Service United States Department of Commerce



The National Weather Service wants everyone to be part of a Weather-Ready Nation. Colorado is an annual host for tornadoes, flash floods, tornadoes, damaging hail, killer lightning and wind damage. Are you weather-ready? Now is the time to make sure you know how to stay safe when severe weather threatens. Therefore, the week of April 16th to 22nd has been designated Colorado Severe Weather Awareness Week.

This page has been created to raise severe weather awareness for the state of Colorado. This page will also serve to provide additional severe weather information to all citizens across the High Plains. Spring is fast approaching...stay aware and please prepare!

Anytime the threat for severe weather exists, stay updated on the latest weather information by going to the National Weather Service Website,, by tuning in to NOAA Weather Radio, or your local television and radio stations.
