DENVER — For the northern Front Range, Denver is the driest in the region this summer, receiving only 19 percent the normal rainfall.

In July, Denver was the driest again with only 14 percent of the average precipitation.

Some neighborhoods have had heavy rainfall, with 4-6 inches in Castle Rock, but the majority have not.

Now for July.

There are three decent rain chances ahead for the city during the next week.

August isn’t known for being particularly rainy, but it is more likely the drought will carry into fall because enough rainfall this month likely won’t return totals to average or above average.

If that last sentence taunts Mother Nature into making me eat my words, so be it.
