Showers and thunderstorms littered the state for one more day, mainly over the Continental Divide, Front Range, and adjacent plains as terrain influences played a large role in development.  A few thunderstorms were able to develop further east over the plains, but were unable to muster much rainfall. Rain was much lighter than the past few days, with most places totaling less than 0.20 inches of rain. However, lingering showers along the Front Range, foothills, and urban corridor were able to add to their totals for an extended period of time. A look at CoCoRaHS reports reveals a few counties who received the most rainfall:

El Paso County: 0.73 inches

Douglas County: 0.53 inches

Arapahoe County: 0.47 inches

Map Update: Our forecasters will continue to monitor weather conditions over all of Colorado's burn areas throughout the summer.
