An active early June weather pattern continues across much of Colorado!
A small funnel cloud was spotted briefly near Aurora early Monday afternoon. The funnel cloud never reached the ground. The National Weather Service said conditions were favorable for the development of "landspouts". Landspouts are not usually associated with a strong "Super Cell" thunderstorm. They do not have a wall cloud and are often difficult to detect with weather radar.
Another round of strong to severe thunderstorms rumbled across eastern Colorado through the afternoon. The storms have moved well east of the area and quiet weather will hold for the night and for Tuesday morning.

Also, an ozone alert has been issued for Monday and Tuesday for high ozone levels, which is unhealthy for sensitive groups. If you have lung or breathing issues, it's best to stay indoors.
Lows will cool to the upper 40s and low 50s by early Monday.
