3:40 PM (ET) | Powerful thunderstorms to move east through the Denver metro region and towards Aurora during the next couple of hours

Discussion

Powerful thunderstorms have formed just to the west of Denver and they are moving towards the east at about 15 mph. These storms are capable of putting down heavy rainfall with up to an inch possible in 30 minutes as well as frequent lightning and small hail. Places just to the east of Denver such as Aurora can be affected by these storms during the next hour or two. More showers and strong storms threaten the same areas for later this afternoon and early this evening as the monsoonal flow of sub-tropical moist air continues through tonight and into Wednesday.
