... Today in Metro Denver weather history...

26-31 in 1995... from the 26th through the 31st... a cool period
        with light morning showers and moderate to heavy
        afternoon showers and thunderstorms pushed rivers
        already swollen from mountain snow melt over their banks
        causing minor flooding. Streams and rivers such as the
        South Platte and Boulder Creek flooded Meadowlands... bike
        paths... roads near streams... and other low lying areas.
        No significant property damage was reported and crop
        damage was unknown. Rainfall totaled 1.79 inches at the
        site of the former Stapleton International Airport and
        only 1.51 inches at Denver International Airport.
28 in 1884... a thunderstorm apparently produced large hail.
        The hail stones were noted as unusually large... but the
        diameter of the stones was not measured. The hail fell
        for only 5 minutes. Precipitation from the storm was
        only 0.05 inch.
      In 1898... heavy thunderstorm rainfall totaled 1.74 inches
        in downtown Denver. Hail of unknown size accompanied
        the storm.
      In 1981... a woman in Aurora was struck and killed by
        lightning. Another Bolt injured a boy on a bicycle at
        about the same time a short distance away. About half an
        inch of rain in 20 minutes caused street flooding in the
        area. A tornado touched down for about 2 minutes some 3
        miles north of Stapleton International Airport.
      In 1982... severe thunderstorms produced Golf Ball size hail
        in southeast Denver... Aurora... and Strasburg. The large
        hailstones undoubtedly damaged some cars in the area.
        At Stapleton International Airport... only 1/2 inch diameter
        hail was measured.
      In 1991... Golf Ball size hail fell in Brighton. No damage
        was reported. Later... hail ranging in size from 3/4 inch
        to 1 1/2 inches in diameter fell over southwestern sections
        of Metro Denver. In some areas... hail piled up a few inches
        in depth.
      In 1994... thunderstorm wind gusts to 65 mph damaged 16 small
        airplanes and a hangar at Centennial Airport.
      In 2001... severe thunderstorms produced large hail across
        Metro Denver. Hail as large as 1 inch in diameter fell
        in Lakewood... Wheat Ridge... northwest Denver... near Watkins...
        Bennett... and Keenesburg. Hail 3/4 inch or larger fell
        in Brighton. Thunderstorm winds gusted to 58 mph at
        Denver International Airport. A small tornado (f0)
        touched down near Bennett... but did no damage.
