Denver sets daily record rainfall for May 11

Record rainfall

One heck of a good dousing! Thornton and Denver received a big shot of rain for the day and in the process, the Mile High City set a record.

As measured at Denver International Airport, the city received 2.92 inches of rain. This easily bests the previous record rainfall for May 11 of 1.55 inches set in 2011.

Here in Thornton we received less but still a very generous amount. We measured 2.38 inches in our bucket, our wettest day of the year so far.
