DENVER -- Severe thunderstorms prompted warnings from the national weather service around metro Denver and on the Eastern Plains Monday night.

The storms developed following a hot day where the high reached 100 degrees in Denver. It was the fifth day in a row over 90 degrees and the first triple-digit reading of the season.
