Denver weather: Here’s when the Memorial Day rain is expected to end

The rain clouds that have blanketed Denver over much of Memorial Day weekend are expected to clear out just as the holiday weekend ends.

Rain and possibly thunderstorms are expected to continue in Denver through Monday evening, according to the National Weather Service in Boulder. The chance of rain will decrease throughout the day and showers are expected to stop after 7 p.m.

Sunshine and temperatures up to 72 degrees are expected Tuesday, though there is a 30% chance of thunderstorms after noon.

The temperature will climb throughout the week up to a high of 85 degrees expected on Friday. Besides a slight chance of storms Wednesday afternoon, the skies should stay clear and sunny.

Rainfall in Denver has far exceeded normal so far this year. The National Weather Service has measured 10.5 inches of rainfall since Jan. 1 — nearly double the normal rainfall of 5.5 inches in that time frame.

About a third of that rain fell in May alone. The weather service recorded 3.7 inches of rain in Denver in May. The normal is 2.2 inches.
