A tornado reportedly touched down in Park County Sunday morning, and the National Weather Service said there is a good chance that more funnel clouds will be spotted on the plains.

“A quick moving trough of low pressure is bringing bumpy unstable weather until the 8 to 10 p.m. time frame,” NWS Boulder meteorologist Kyle Fredin said.

The funnel was spotted in Park County at about 11:15, Fredin said. A Park County law enforcement agent told the weather service that the tornado damaged a roof but caused no injuries.

In Denver, Fredin said, “heavier showers are moving over us now.”
