PRECIPITATION

July is known for being a wet month across Colorado, especially in the mountains and on the eastern plains, thanks to the North American Monsoon.

The monsoon is a seasonal shift in the wind patterns that carry moisture from the tropics, across the deserts of Arizona and New Mexico, into Colorado.

For Denver, July is the wettest month of the year, with 2.16″ of rain on average. If the latest outlook is correct, this year could be no exception.

The Climate Prediction Center is calling for wetter-than-normal conditions this July across much of the interior western United States, including Colorado.
