07/22/2004 NOW: High Plains

SPC has issued an MD concerning severe potential with mention of supercells along the front range as upslope increases with the passage of the front. Ample moisture still gives flooding as the main threat, however, SPC has mentioned that hail up to the size of half-dollars is possible in stronger storms. A watch box may go up for the Northeastern parts of Colorado and southern Wyoming in the next couple of hours.

Started this NOW thread to accomodate development over the mountains as they drift onto the Front Range...
 
Severe Thunderstorm Warning issued for areas northeast of Denver. Hail as large as 1.25 inches has been reported in Commerce City.. here we go! :)

-EDIT-
Channel 9 News out of Denver has mentioned on their website that funnel clouds have been spotted by call-in viewers.. no tornado warnings yet, although the radar out of Denver is beginning to look interesting; 70 DBz echo right now! :shock:
 
Things moving faster than I can keep up with.. looks like a TORNADO WARNING has gone out on that cell just to the east of time. The radar is showing what looks like a developing hook east of town. The text of this warning states..

* AT 118 PM MDT...A TRAINED WEATHER SPOTTER REPORTED A LARGE WALL CLOUD OVER EASTERN AURORA...OR ABOUT 13 MILES EAST OF DENVER. THE THUNDERSTORM PRODUCING THE WALL CLOUD WAS MOVING SOUTHEAST AT 15 MPH.

Stuck at work! :( Dag nab it! Goes to show what little we need out here sometimes to get one of these going!

-EDIT-
Wow, look at the hook!
 
SPC has just issed a TORNADO WATCH for Eastern Colorado and Western Kansas til 700p CDT/600p MDT. This watch box borders the Eastern suburbs of Denver, including the areas currently under the ongoing TORNADO WARNING. Tree damage from hail has been reported, but nothing tornatic yet.
 
Tornado warned cell continues to accelerate and book south. It has veered right since its birth north of Denver. This cell, originally moving southeast at 10mph is now moving south at 30. So far, no reports of tornatic damage, although hail reports and minor flooding are coming in. Hail up to 1.25 inches in diameter has accumulated 3 inches deep on I-70 at E-470 in the far Eastern portions of the Denver area.. more reports coming in.
