Denver precipitation chances

Moisture starts to increase in the mountains this weekend as the monsoon gradually returns to Colorado. Expect small 10-20% chances for afternoon thunderstorms in Denver.

A surge of monsoon moisture arrives late Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, and early Wednesday. This means rain/thunderstorm chances are higher for those days. Cooler temperatures in the low to mid-80s will also arrive Monday and Tuesday.
