More storms, tornadoes possible in Colorado

APTOPIX Severe Weather-Colorado

DENVER (AP) — Meteorologists say six tornadoes touched down east of Denver and more spring thunderstorms are expected Thursday along the Front Range and eastern Colorado.

No significant damage was reported from the twisters and Thursday’s weather isn’t expected to be as extreme or as widespread as that seen Wednesday. Hail blanketed some metro area roads like snow. The National Weather Service says hail piled up 4 inches deep near Strasburg.

The storms temporarily grounded flights at Denver International Airport. Frontier Airlines canceled some flights after six of its planes were damaged by hail. It’s waiving change fees for passengers who need to rebook their flights.

Meteorologist Kari Bowen says lower level winds aren’t forecast to be as strong Thursday, which means any tornadoes that do form will likely be more short lived.
