Today’s rainfall in GJ breaks record

The thunderstorm that moved through the area about 5 p.m today., dumping up to half an inch of rain on some parts of the Grand Valley, was noteworthy for more than one reason.

First, it was the first significant rainfall of the past several months, according to the National Weather Service.

Second, it was a record amount of rainfall for this date. The National Weather Service located at the Grand Junction Regional Airport received 0.48 inches from the storm, beating the previous mark of precipitation for July 7, which was 0.27 set in 1933.

Meteorologist Paul Frisbie said the Redlands received the most rain from the storm, with some places reporting at least half an inch.
