Issue Date: Saturday, June 27th, 2015
Issue Time: 9:00 AM MDT


With upper-level high pressure building across the western US, thunderstorm activity across Colorado was suppressed a bit over previous days. As temperatures warmed up during the afternoon, isolated-to-widely scattered showers and thunderstorms were able to develop, impacting mainly the high country. A couple of thunderstorms found themselves over the I-25 corridor south of Highway 50, producing lightning, gusty winds, and brief heavy rain.

An Areal Flood Advisory was issued for Teller and portions of Fremont County during the evening as a relatively slow moving thunderstorm drifted across the area. There were no flash flood reports in the area, however, and no other flash flooding was reported yesterday. As far as severe storm reports are concerned, the only report came in from Custer County; 1 inch hail fell in Rosita around 6 PM.
