DENVER — A cool start in metro Denver Thursday as a band of heavy rain that passed through the city Wednesday night moved out and drier weather moved in.

Severe weather was confined to eastern Colorado, where golf ball-sized hail was reported.

“This is much-needed moisture,” says Pinpoint Weather chief meteorologist Dave Fraser.

Some areas received half-an-inch of rain from the storms, which lasted well past midnight.

There was snow at high elevations in the mountains at places like the Eisenhower Tunnel and Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park.

Meteorologist Jennifer Broome says the Memorial Day holiday weekend looks great. High temperatures will be 75-80 degrees each afternoon through Monday. There could be an isolated storm Friday and Sunday, but otherwise it will be dry.
