DENVER (CBS4) – Denver officially saw no rain over the weekend. But a few spots were lucky enough to get a brief thunderstorms that dropped over a half inch of rain in some areas like Roxborough Park.

Monday morning will be dry and warm with overnight lows only falling into the lower and middle 60s. Monday and Tuesday will be hot with highs in the lower and middle 90s in the Denver metro area.  It will also stay stay mainly dry Monday and Tuesday although a few areas mainly near the base of the foothills may experience a brief thunderstorm that brings heavy rain, gusty wind, and frequent lightning.

Much better chances for afternoon and evening thunderstorms will be found in the mountains on early in the week with at least a 40-50% chance for rain in Summit County.

By Wednesday we should see somewhat better thunderstorm chances develop in the Denver area. The same is true for Thursday. It will also become noticeably “cooler” along the Front Range with highs dropping into the lower 80s on Wednesday!

As of Sunday evening Denver is more than 1 inch below normal with rainfall for July (our wettest month of the year right after May). So let’s hope we see some soaking rain this week!
