Parts of the Denver Metro Area could see up to 3.25 inches of rain according to the College of DuPage NEXLAB GFS model. The precipitation would be welcomed by much of the state of Colorado as only a small portion of the state is currently not in a drought or abnormally dry level. According to the United States Drought Monitor, the area not affected by drought is in part of Larimer and Boulder counties.

Stay dry next week. Be sure you keep an umbrella handy too, you are probably going to need it.
