DENVER — Just a day after severe weather let up in the Denver metro, a second round of storms was brewing.

The second round will be less severe than Monday's dose of severe weather, but there's still a chance for severe storms to crop up in the Denver Metro and along the Front Range. 

Starting around 2:30 p.m., just west of the Denver metro area began seeing isolated thunderstorms, however the storms failed to grow. The area around Colorado Springs also saw very severe weather throughout the afternoon, with flooding affecting a large area as the day turned into evening.

With the small threat of severe weather still upon Denver, lightning strikes and thunderstorms are still possible throughout the metro area. Lightning can pose a real threat to the lives of those in the area of a storm.

Thankfully for many residents in the hardest hit areas of Monday's storms, any remaining path of severe weather is expected to be slightly southeast of the most populated area of Colorado.

When storms hit Monday, thousands of vehicles and buildings were damaged, leading major businesses to close to make repairs along with a host of closed schools.
