DENVER — Partly cloudy and cool today, with highs in the upper 50s. There is a chance for a few more storms and showers this afternoon and evening.
The moisture has been a huge benefit for Denver, the Front Range and the eastern plains. At Denver International Airport, the total precipitation since Jan. 1 is over 7.5 inches — the wettest first four months since 1944! The recent stormy weather has put a big dent in the drought conditions over the northeast quarter of Colorado.
Western and southern Colorado have not been as fortunate as drought conditions remain quite serious, especially for the northwestern portion of the state.
The weather will remain a little cool and unsettled over the northern half of Colorado both today and Wednesday as a series of weak upper air disturbances move across the state. Temperatures Wednesday will climb to the low 60s.
Warmer and drier weather will return for Thursday and Friday with highs in the 70s Thursday and lower 80s on Friday. There may be a few afternoon thunderstorms on Friday.
Cooler and wet weather will return to most of Colorado on Mothers Day weekend — sorry moms!
