Midday Update; and Great Plains/Rockies Severe Weather Event

This picture is from Denver station KUSA-TV showing the tornado as it is going towards Windsor in Weld Co. Colorado. This tornado has been reported being a much as a mile wide in width. There is one known fatality in the town of Windsor, and there is numerous widespread damage throughout the small town. To add to this now deadly rage of severe weather. There has been a high risk area issued for the Western parts of Kansas. There has also been a PDS (Particularly Dangerous Situation) Tornado Watch put up for that same area too. This active weather looks to continue even into the nighttime hours. Conditions here are thankfully much quiter and nicer. It looks like a nice band of rain is trying to make its way into northern parts of Alabama and may hold together long enough to give some of are southern sections of Mid. TN a quick, but needed, rainshower. I'll have more on are forecast for tonight as well as are rain chances for tomorrow.
