Click on the thumbnail graphics for the U.S. Drought Monitor maps for the last three weeks. It appears that the monsoon is alleviating the Colorado drought.
From the Summit County Citizens Voice (Bob Berwyn):
July ended up being the hottest ever for Denver, breaking the previous record by 1.1 degrees, based on statistics going back to 1872. The average temperature for the months was 78.9 degrees, topping the Dust Bowl-era record of 77.8 degrees set in 1934…
And while the monsoon delivered plenty of moisture in the mountains, mostly west of the Continental Divide, Denver stayed very dry, officially reporting only .48 inches of rain, less than 25 percent of the average 2.16 inches for the month.
