Tornadoes, rain snow: must be spring in Rockies

DENVER – If it’s springtime in the Rockies, there must be snow, tornadoes and rain in the forecast. And there are in Colorado.

Tornado watches and warnings have been issued for the Denver area and eastern plains through 9 p.m. Tuesday. The National Weather Service says radar indicates the buildup of thunderstorms just northeast of Denver.

The weather service office in Boulder says two tornadoes touched down in far northwestern Weld County, near the Wyoming border. People reported seeing another tornado about 40 miles northeast of Denver

There were no immediate reports of damage.

A low-pressure system is expected to dump snow in the western and central mountains. Up to 8 inches of snow could fall and winds could reach 25 mph.
