Another round of showers and storms will move in later tonight, and will likely last through the first half of Tuesday morning. We may dry out a bit during the middle of the day, but more showers and storms will develop in the afternoon. Some could be strong (hail, heavy rain, lightning) but widespread severe weather does not appear likely. We will then dry out later Tuesday evening. Head over to the "Weather" tab for a full look at the week's forecast.
The site at the new Fossil Creek Park also had bones from birds, rodents and other animals that are at least 30,000-years-old.
After the discovery, the city contacted Colorado State University anthropology professor Larry Todd, who brought in students to excavate the bones. The class worked through September and into mid-October.
The Fossil Creek site was a floodplain, with buried deposits from the Rocky Mountains' glacial outwash during the Ice Ages.
Sediment accumulated rapidly, eventually burying the bones under 15 feet of soil.
