DENVER — A spring storm has produced some wild weather across Colorado with rain, thunder, snow and even a brief tornado in El Paso County!
A weak, short-lived tornado touched down shortly after 4 PM bear the town of Calhan. The twister spun around some farm fields, but did cause some minor damage to some trailers and outdoor equipment.
It is a cold and wet start to our Saturday across the Front Range. Temperatures will stay below freezing until around 9 a.m.
Snow totals are around 2-4 inches along the Front Range through morning. Around 3-5 inches are possible in the foothills and over the Palmer Divide. Expect some slick roads early Saturday across the metro-area and plains.
Snow is expected to taper off by early afternoon Saturday. Skies gradually clear, but highs will stay chilly in the low 40s.
Dry and milder conditions return on Sunday, with highs in the low 50s under a partly cloudy sky. Temperatures then warm through the week. Expect highs in the upper 50s Monday, mid-60s on Tuesday, then near 70 on Wednesday with the chance for a few late-day storms.
