Rain finally ends, drier weather forecast Thursday

DENVER — The rain slowly ended by late Wednesday night as the slow-moving storm that caused havoc across the Front Range and brought flooding in Denver and other places along the Front Range and in eastern Colorado moved out of the state.

A record 1.8″ of rain fell on Denver Tuesday, and the city received another .96″ Wednesday for a 2-day total of 2.76″.

The wet weather caused plenty of problems for a second day in a row. Classes were canceled at Heritage College in Wheat Ridge when the roof started leaking.

Skies will partially clear and some light fog will be possible overnight into Thursday.  Sunshine returns during the day Thursday with a warm afternoon as temperatures return to the upper 70s. This after Denver had its lowest high temperature on record for July 30 of 62 degrees Wednesday.

An isolated thunderstorm sis possible, but most places in metro Denver look to stay dry.  That will be the chance going forward into the weekend with an isolated storm possible each day, but most places missing the rain. Temperatures return to the 80s through the weekend.

The next best chance for wet weather arrives the middle part of next week.
