Less hot, better chance for rain

6:55 AM, Tuesday, July 25, 2017

Beginning today and for the next few days we will see more afternoon cloudy periods, cooler daytime temperatures, and a better chance for showers and thunderstorms.

 

The 2017 North American monsoon has been active but it has been mainly south and west of the Denver-Boulder-Fort Collins-Cheyenne area. There were a few days late last week when a plume of moisture moved over the Front Range region, but it was mainly upper level moisture and so there were limited amounts of rain reaching the ground. This morning there are already showers across parts of western Colorado as another monsoon moisture surge moves north. That should increase chance for showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and tonight (and again Wednesday and maybe Thursday) for northeastern Colorado and the Front Range. There could even be some locally heavy rain.
