Storms wind down tonight, return tomorrow

KUSA - Monday brought more severe weather to the Front Range. Strong storms are expected again Tuesday.

Radar-indicated rotation near Denver International Airport prompted the National Weather Service to issue a Tornado Warning for the area. The warning was later canceled.

DIA was asking passengers to go inside tornado shelters located throughout the airport. The concourses cleared and 40 inbound flights were diverted before the threat passed.

The Douglas County Sheriff's Office was investigating a report of a tornado touch down in the area of South Russellville Road and Colorado Highway 83 Monday evening. No damage or injuries were reported.

Eastern Colorado was under a Severe Thunderstorm Watch for most of Monday.

Monday's storms also produced heavy rain causing street flooding in some areas. The storms moved out of the state Monday night.

A break from severe weather will last until Tuesday afternoon, when another threat for strong storms will move back onto the Front Range.
