Wednesday will offer more cloud cover and cooler temperatures. By later Wednesday afternoon, rain showers will develop across the Pikes Peak Region and slowly drift southward. Those rain showers will change to snow at higher elevations, and accumulations will be likely. At lower elevations, snow accumulation does not appear to be a big deal. Forecast details can be found under the "Weather" tab.
Colorado's water supply is in the best shape in two years but nobody is saying the drought is over. The statewide snowpack was 94% of average, 356% of last year.
Klaus Wolter is a climatolgist at the Boulder-based National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Climate Diagnostics Center. He says if Denver area users can reduce water consumption by 30% and the wet spring continues, its reservoirs could reach 100%.
In Aurora, whose reservoirs have dropped to 27%, officials hope a combination of factors will allow them to fill to at least 50% this summer
