Colorado National Forecast Closed Due to Drought

But, Relief is on The Way

San Juan National Forest in Colorado was closed yesterday due to the extreme drought. However, at least some relief is on the way in in the form of the remains of Tropical Storm Bud.

Here is a rough idea of where the rains from Bud will fall (between the arrows).
ECMWF Ten-Day Rainfall Forecast
Of course, this track may vary a bit to the east or west, but moderate to heavy rains should fall over Colorado regardless. In addition, there is a low pressure system that should be over California behind Bud that will cause widespread afternoon showers and thundershowers behind Bud. So, total rainfalls should be ample to improve fire and drought conditions.
