Severe weather has returned to the Denver metro area and the Front Range Tuesday afternoon.  At approximately 4:50pm and for nearly one half hour afterwards trained spotters reported numerous funnel clouds over the Northglenn, Thornton, and Broomfield areas.  No tornadoes touched down however.

At 5:11pm local law enforcement reported a tornado four miles northwest of Firestone moving at 20mph.  This area remains under a Tornado Warning until 5:00pm. 

If you are in an area under a Tornado Warning, do not try to outrun the storm or chase it in your vehicle.  Immediately seek shelter in a building.  If no structure is available, seek shelter in a ditch or low spot.  If in your home or other building go to an interior hallway or ideally the basement.
