The storm brought a tornado near Hereford and Grover in Weld County. There was no property damage or injures, according to the Weld County Sheriff’s Office.

In Colorado, Larimer, Logan, Morgan, Washington and Weld counties were included in the tornado watch.

In Wyoming: Albany, Converse, Goshen, Laramie, Niobrara and Platte counties were included in the watch.

And in Nebraska: Banner, Kimball, Scotts, Bluff and Sioux counties were included in the watch.

A tornado watch means tornadoes are possible in the area, but are not imminent.

“Be Prepared! Tornadoes are possible in and near the watch area,” the National Weather Service said in its description of a tornado watch. “Review and discuss your emergency plans and check supplies and your safe room.

“Be ready to act quickly if a warning is issued or you suspect a tornado is approaching. Acting early helps to save lives! Watches are issued by the Storm Prediction Center for counties where tornadoes may occur. The watch area is typically large, covering numerous counties or even states.”
