Here are this week’s notes from the Colorado Climate Center. Here’s an excerpt:

Since 
the
 beginning
 of 
June,
 much 
of 
the 
UCRB 
and
 surrounding 
areas 
have
 been 
fairly 
dry
…A 
few
 localized
 regions 
received
 isolated 
storms
 last 
week,
 resulting 
in 
higher 
accumulations — parts 
of 
northern
 CO
 and southeast 
WY 
have 
received
 over 
half
 an
 inch 
of 
precipitation.
 
Northeast 
UT 
and
 Southeast 
CO 
also 
saw
 around
a 
quarter 
to 
half 
an 
inch 
of 
precipitation. 

Most 
of 
the 
UCRB
 and 
eastern 
plains 
of 
CO 
have 
only
 received
 around
 a
 tenth 
of 
an 
inch 
or 
less 
of 
moisture 
for 
the 
month.
