According to the National Weather Service of Boulder, a heavy thunderstorm struck a golf ball-sized hail on the Denver Metro on Sunday afternoon.
According to meteorologist Frank Cooper, storms occurred in southeastern Denver and the aurora, weather services received reports of hail ranging from 1 inch to 1.5 inches, and golf ball-sized chunks were about 3 miles north of the aurora. We’re screwed.
Severe thunderstorm warnings have been issued to residents of southeastern Denver, including Centennial, Littleton, and Inglewood, until 6:30 pm.
The storm was weakening as it progressed, Cooper said. According to Cooper, Denver Metro can have one or two storms until around 8 pm.
“There was a small chance of a thunderstorm in the area, but it finally happened,” Cooper says.
A storm hits when the front range starts what is expected to be a heat wave for at least a week, and temperatures are expected to reach 100 degrees this week.
