DENVER — Chilly temperatures and more light rain and snow can be expected tonight, although the intensity and scale of the precipitation is lessening.

The moisture has been a huge benefit for Denver, the Front Range and the eastern plains. At DIA, the total precipitation since January 1st is over 7.50 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 Tuesday and Wednesday as a series of weak upper air disturbances move across the state. Temperatures will only reach the upper 50s in Denver on Tuesday and low 60s on Wednesday.

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 wetter weather will return to most of Colorado over the Mothers Day weekend - sorry moms!
