Heavy rain, hail around the state

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. 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.
