PM Update: T-Storm Chances Tonight & Tuesday
Storm chances persist through much of the week
Clouds bubbling up this afternoon may lead to a few storms, most likely not until the evening and overnight. Keep an eye to the sky this evening if you have any outdoor plans. Quick-hitting heavy rain, lightning, gusty winds and hail would be the main threats. A southerly wind continues to pump humidity up to uncomfortable levels after afternoon highs topped out in the mid-to-upper 80s.
Tonight: A risk of isolated to scattered thunderstorms this evening and overnight -- around a 50% chance, mainly after 7 p.m. -- should dissipate toward dawn. Lows will mostly be in the upper 60s to near 70 as mostly cloudy skies and abundant surface moisture keeps things warm. South winds continue.
Tomorrow (Tuesday): Another sultry day is on the way. Periods of sun throughout will prime us for some possible severe weather late as highs top out between 85 and 90. Scattered storms -- but more numerous than today -- are likely in the afternoon and evening, some with potentially damaging winds and large hail.

Colorado Tornadoes: While CWG's Andrew Freedman was with VORTEX2 yesterday, 5 tornadoes touched down to their west near Denver, Colorado. Most of the tornadoes were relatively short lived and rather weak, but damage was reported across the area, including to a large shopping mall in Aurora.
