Storms bring rain, hail to Colorado Thursday

Small hail pelted several parts of the Denver metro area.

DENVER — A storm system moved across Colorado Thursday, bringing rain and hail to the Front Range. 

Denver International Airport was on a ground stop due to the storms. As of 8:40 p.m., 774 flights have been delayed and 50 flights have been canceled. 

Hail pelted some of the outdoor parking lots just west of the airport, though it appeared the hail that fell was pretty small. More than a quarter of an inch of rain fell at DIA from Thursday afternoon's storm.

Small hail also fell in Thornton and Brighton from a separate storm.

Denver and the Interstate 25 corridor were within the marginal risk for severe weather, with periods of heavy rain, strong winds and hail being the largest threats. 

A severe thunderstorm watch was in effect for much of northern and eastern Colorado until 9 p.m. 

ALERTS: Latest Colorado weather alerts

The forecast calls for Colorado to dry out a bit on Friday, but enough moisture will remain to form scattered thunderstorms.

A cold front will drop through Colorado late Saturday. The result will be more clouds with a chance for storms on Sunday, with highs cooling into the 70s.
