Denver sets new record for 24-hour rainfall on July 29

DENVER - The rain storm sitting over Colorado is a record breaker for Denver.

The National Weather Service in Boulder said 1.80 inches of precipitation fell at Denver International Airport on Tuesday.

That's a new 24-hour precipitation record for Denver for July 29.

The National Weather Service said the previous record was 1.44 inches back in 1989.

"While that's a record for Denver International Airport, other locations saw double that amount of rain in a quarter of that amount of time," said 247Weather anchor Dayle Cedars.

The National Weather Service is estimating that Greeley got 4.17 inches in 24 hours. Windsor saw 3.5 inches and Lamar got 3.44 inches, according to the NWS.
