May 27, 2015--Durango records wettest May on record; more rain is likely (Durango Herald)

It’s not just your imagination – Durango already has experienced its wettest May in at least 16 years, and more rain may be on the way. By Tuesday, 2.9 inches of precipitation had fallen at Durango-La Plata County Airport. Records at that location date to 2000. The second-wettest May came in 2011, when 1.29 inches fell. With five days remaining in the month, Durango could easily break the 3-inch barrier. Last year saw only 0.68 inches of May precipitation. “It’s actually going to be a wet week as well,” said Megan Stackhouse, a National Weather Service meteorologist in Grand Junction.
