DENVER (CBS4) - So the seemingly never ending grip of heavy rain finally wraps up later tonight.  Showers continue in the city and an additional .50″ is possible, so localized flooding will continue.  Low lying areas, under passes, and overwhelmed culverts will look unchanged through the night.  But when the rain faucet turns off tomorrow the water will eventually subside.  We broke the “Record Low Maximum” temperature in Denver today.  Meaning it has never been this cool on July 30th as long as records have been kept.  Only 62 degrees!

The cold front has dropped south of Colorado.  But northeasterly upslope winds continue this evening, that’s why the moisture hasn’t cleared out.  Tomorrow less lifting will occur in the lower atmosphere, but unfortunately the continued north winds will push fog into the metro and foothills.  If rain develops in the afternoon, I doubt it will be as slow moving as today.

Friday we jump to the 80s with more afternoon sun likely.  The five day forecast remains active through the weekend with afternoon thunderstorms possible every day.  80s are back in the picture through Sunday!
