  1. I would love to get the thoughts from folks here on eclipse viewing along the Mtn West path of totality through NE, WY, ID and OR. We will be in WY and this constant rain is a bit worrisome. On another note, Fort Collins just had one of the strongest 30 minute blasts of rain I've seen probably all year. The city rain gauges show 0.75"/30 minutes near our house.
  2. In Fort Collins, west of Drake and College got hit really hard and some very large trees/limbs came down. Probably the biggest was half of one of the biggest cottonwoods in Colorado. See below:
  3. We just had the first thunder snow I've experienced in a long time! Large trees are breaking apart, this is going to be messy. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  4. CSU just announced they are closing early due to falling tree limbs. Campus will close at 12:30.
  5. It's absolutely dumping huge flakes in Fort Collins. Some of the trees already look stressed by the snow. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  6. Tornado warned now, with confirmed one on the ground near Berthoud per Channel 7.
  7. That is an outstanding image. I tried to get out to get this image but was too slow and missed the light. So glad you caught it!
  8. 7 News is nearby on their live stream here: http://www.thedenverchannel.com/live
  9. KDVR is streaming live coverage of the storms here: http://kdvr.com/on-air/live-streaming/
  10. I did go outside and it started out as rain/graupel/ice/snow mix at my location in central FOCO and finished up as snow.
  11. It seems for years now I have taken a photograph of a rainbow on July 4th, not looking too likely for this year. Too bad, a week ago it looked like the rain might have continued all through the week. Sure hope we avoid any new fires from folks lighting off fireworks. I processed another of that storm that pounded Fort Collins. I think Chinook might like this one better because it was after the sun had gone down and the funky sunset glowy colors objected to in the first post (they were really there, some of the strangest light I've seen) are not on this one: Organically Grown Fireworks by Fort Photo, on Flickr
  12. It isn't on the summit, if you look on the linked image map on fickr you can see pretty close to where I was. It's in a former burn area and thus there are wide open views like this.
  13. I was lucky to be on top of Storm Mountain west of Loveland for the Friday night storms and was able to get some great photos as the Fort Collins hail storm came into my location as it moved south. I've only had time to process one but thought folks here might enjoy: Storm Mountain Tempest by Fort Photo, on Flickr
  14. TOR-warned cell in Denver and Adams County basically east of Aurora. This has potential to effect DIA. Screen cap from @CodyCrouch on Twitter.
  15. It looks like a solid chance for strong winds and maybe some dry t-storms with powerful outflow for the burn area today per NWS. Any thoughts from the mets on how things will develop around the Black Forest Fire today? Already the most destructive CO wildfire with 360+ homes gone, I fear with the addition of wind it could get much worse this afternoon again.
