BRIGHTON -- Summer weather came to an abrupt end Sept. 29.
Heavy rain, wind and hail roared through parts of Adams County around midafternoon, causing street flooding and sending hail over the sidewalks and into the gutters of downtown Brighton.
The storms began in southern Colorado and pushed their way north. Both the state 4A and 5A golf tournaments were delayed by the bad weather for a time. Hail to 1 3/4 inches in diameter was reported in parts of Elbert County.
A tornado watch was posted for Adams and Weld counties as well.
