New Record 24-hour Colorado Rainfall at Fort Carson

During last year's historic September Colorado Floods, on September 12, 2013, heavy rain pummeled the north side the Fort Carson Army Post.  In a 3-hour period, more than 8 inches of rain fell, causing some serious flooding in the area.  During the September 12th calendar day, 11.85 inches of rain fell at the Rod and Gun Meteorologic Station at Fort Carson.  This eclipses the old Colorado record of 11.08 inches near Holly in 1965.
