So far, the first half of 2021 has been one of Colorado's wettest years on record. The Denver Metro area has gotten nearly 10.5 inches of precipitation between January and June, which is more than all of 2020, where our region got less than nine inches of precipitation total. 2021, so far, is Northern Colorado's ninth-wettest year on record, and the wettest it's been here since 1983, according to the National Weather Service.
