    northwest MCS coming with lots of damage with the heat on its heels not far away.

  4. Check out this radar loop, you can see the supercell quickly develop and spin over DIA, and then it dies quickly also: http://climate.cod.edu/flanis/nexrad.php?type=FTG-N0Q-1-96

    I live about 7 miles due south of DIA and got a great view of the tornado touching down. It was quite the sight; though looked to be an EF0 at the most.
