DENVER (AP) - A storm packing large hail, wind and heavy rain rolled through parts of Colorado on Monday evening.

The storm brought an end to triple-digit temperatures but caused isolated flooding and power outages. KUSA-TV reports (https://on9news.tv/1r4CGy5) that there were also reports of downed trees.

National Weather Service meteorologist Jim Kalina says the hardest hit area was Arvada, where there were reports of golf ball-sized hail and 70 mph winds. Kalina says in Byers, east of Denver, there were 3 inches of hail on the ground. The weather service also issued flash-flood warnings in Arapahoe and Elbert counties.

The storm started in northern Colorado in Larimer County, moved through Boulder County, and then the Denver area. It followed a day with a high of 100 degrees, which Kalina says was the hottest temperature of the year.
