T-Storms, But No Twisters Forecast For Colorado

DENVER (AP) – Spring thunderstorms could bring some heavy rain to parts of Colorado Friday, but thankfully there are no more tornadoes or golf ball-sized hail in the forecast.

Despite the break from severe weather, a fourth straight day of afternoon rain could still create problems in places that are already soaked. If it falls in the mountains, National Weather Service meteorologist Kari Bowen says it could also speed up the melting of mountain snow.

On Thursday, hail pounded the Front Range and Colorado Rockies fans had to take shelter at Coors Field as tornado sirens wailed.

No tornadoes have been confirmed but meteorologists are investigating whether a twister may have knocked more than 100 trees down at a campground near Red Feather Lakes northwest of Fort Collins.
