So something that's either 1) Never happened in Colorado before or 2) Hasn't happened in such a long time that no one remembers it, happened today. They were predicting our warm front (yay 90's) to collide with a cold front coming up with the south. They predicted this would happen somewhere over the Eastern plains of Colorado. WRONG. Instead it collided just south and west of the Denver airport (where I live). What you got was a MASSIVE SEVERE super cell thunderstorm. What made it worse? The cold front prevented the storm from moving, so all it did was sit where it was. Second, the cold front pushed winds and moisture from the storm to the mountains where it was then sucked back in to the warm front (storm) which caused it to just grow stronger and bigger. At one point the peak of the storm was 51,000 feet. That's almost 10 miles high. We had over 15 tornadoes drop south of Denver. That doesn't happen. Ever. We also had non-stop downpour for about 5 hours. We had golf ball size hail fall. FOUR SEPARATE TIMES. After the storm ended (took 4 to 5 hours) I went for a drive to buy smokes (I was out) and surveyed the damage. No tornadoes hit my town (luckily, though we had 3 separate tornado warnings) but there was tree branches down, leaves covering the road from the hail, a few fences knocked over, a tree that was struck by lightning in half, and power was out for parts of the town. We were on the national news tonight, I know that much, because no one had seen a system build like that. It actually got stronger on the BACKSIDE of the storm which WASN'T MOVING and the entire thing was spinning and dropping tornadoes. I've been here 21 years and I'm a weather fanatic and I have *NEVER* seen anything like it. I took some pictures of the entire thing from start to finish, I'll have to upload them at some point. But it was crazy. I'll link some photos.
