    Boulder, CO Rainfall total for 6/29/13?

    We had a crazy, crazy thunderstorm last night around 9:00pm with intense rain and hail. I'm curious how much rain actually fell during the storm, but can't seem to find a source online for that info. Anyone know the answer, or know where to look? Thanks.

    Rain gauge usually works.

    Pretty wild, eh Peg? Haven't seen anything like that in a while. This was about the best I could do this morning, though the numbers don't really do the storm justice:

    Perhaps the hail makes totals a bit trickier. Dunno.

    Ncar has great breakdowns if you're near of their sites. Heres a link for the foothills ncar site in NE boulder. http://www.eol.ucar.edu/cgi-bin/weat...r&fields=raina

    Click the link for the mesa site to view info for SW boulder. I live just down the hill from the mesa building so its perfect to see wind speeds rainfall etc. We regularly get gusts over 70mph in this little pocket during the winter so I'm always checking it.

    Not Boulder, but apparently Ft. Collins was getting over 2" an hour last night. Out here in Niwot we never got torrential rain, but it came down consistently for about three hours. Hopefully this turns into a pattern.

    Lightning show was one of the most impressive I've ever seen...but we didn't get a drop in SW Denver Metro area.

    That was nuts. Destroyed half of our garden, though.

    This is a volunteer network but has pretty good data for daily totals.

    This thread and its date could use an update.

    I am feeling really lucky, a little water in my crawl space and my backyard is a lake. Other mags have it way worse. We seriously need some dry weather, but it's rained all evening.
