From CBS Denver (Chris Spears):

According to the U.S. Drought Monitor, Denver’s northern and eastern suburbs have been added into a growing area of moderate drought, which now extends from Aurora to Fort Collins.

A second area of moderate drought was developing in east-central Colorado on the eastern side of the Palmer Divide.

Moderate drought means damage has been reported to crops or pastures and that water shortages are either developing or could be imminent.

A large part of northwest Colorado remains abnormally dry, or in pre-drought, along with some of the mountains in southern Colorado.
