DENVER (CBS4) – Strong storms broke along the front range on Monday afternoon – some with heavy rains, lightning, hail gusty winds and yes, even tornadoes. Two were officially spotted: one at 3:53pm two miles south of Ft. Lupton in Weld County, and the second one at 4:09pm 7 miles west-south-west of D.I.A. in Adams County. Flood Warnings were also posted for many of the storms as some produced over 2″ or rain. And A great deal of the state – including the greater Denver metro area – in under a Flash Flood Watch continuing as late as 6pm on Wednesday.
Look for more widespread heavy and severe storms for Tuesday with a high only around 80 and not much change as strong storms continue into Wednesday with a cooler high of just 73 degrees! Thursday and Friday continue in the mid to upper 70s with just scattered storms. Then the weekend will see scattered to isolated storms but highs still well below normal if the lower 80s.
