July will bring mon­soons

The Denver Post - - NEWS - By Ac­cuWeather

Colorado will have a warmer-than-av­er­age July, with a few op­por­tu­ni­ties for show­ers and thun­der­storms, as well as a cou­ple of se­vere weather episodes.

There will also be sev­eral dry days dur­ing the month, with sev­eral days reach­ing the 90s or climb­ing past 100 from the foothills along the Front Range across the Eastern Plains, in­clud­ing Den­ver, Colorado Springs and Pue­blo.

Tem­per­a­tures are ex­pected to av­er­age 2 to 3 de­grees above the nor­mals in the east and 1 to 2 de­grees above nor­mal in the moun­tains and west.

Nor­mal highs are near 90 de­grees in Den­ver to mid90s to­ward the Kansas bor­der.

There should be one or two days of se­vere weather, es­pe­cially in the eastern half of Colorado, with the main threats be­ing large hail and even a few tor­na­does.

The sum­mer mon­soon should come alive in mid-July and lead to show­ers and thun­der­storm in the moun­tains, pri­mar­ily dur­ing the af­ter­noon and evening hours.

There could be lo­cal­ized flash flood­ing in some ar­eas.

Over­all, we ex­pect rain­fall to av­er­age near nor­mal dur­ing the month east of the moun­tains. How­ever, rain­fall should wind up above nor­mal in the moun­tains due to the up­com­ing sum­mer mon­soon.
