BOULDER, Colo. — A powerful storm system that moved through northern Colorado Monday evening produced baseball-sized hail and powerful winds.

The storm damaged cars and homes in the Boulder area, before moving northeast toward Fort Mogan, where 70 mph winds and baseball-sized hail wreaked havoc in Morgan County.

According to the National Weather Service, damage is likely to mobile homes, roofs, and outbuildings.

The storm was produced by cooler temperatures and higher humidity, causing an upper air disturbance.

There will again be a threat of large hail and damaging winds Tuesday afternoon.
