From The Colorado Springs Gazette (Chhun Sun):

With five days left in the month, Colorado Springs is less than half an inch from matching the rainfall total for the wettest May in the city’s history.

The Colorado Springs Airport received .26 inches of rain from 4 p.m. Tuesday to 10 p.m. Tuesday with no report of precipitation after that time, putting this month’s official rainfall total at 7.66 inches, said meteorologist Randy Gray of the National Weather Service in Pueblo.

That’s just .44 inches from the record of 8.1 inches, which was set in 1935.

“We’re keeping an eye on that record,” Gray said.
