KUSA - Thursday's powerful thunderstorms dropped nearly two inches of rainfall at Denver International Airport, setting a new record for the date.
Officially, 1.94 inches was measured at the site. This breaks the previous record of 0.75 inches set in 1953 at the Stapleton Airport.
This additional moisture helped our rainfall deficit in Denver. So far for the year, Colorado has seen 10.69" in Denver, with 11.00" as the average.
This means yearly rainfall totals are now just 0.31 inches shy of where Colorado should sit for this time of year.
