Denver ties all-time high of 105 degrees, again
DENVER — Records just keep falling.
Denver reached a high temperature of 105 degrees Tuesday afternoon for the second day in a row, tying the all-time record once again.
The previous record high for June 26 was 104 degrees set in 1994.
Denver has now reached the 105 degree marks three times in recorded history. 105 degrees was also reached on June 25, 2012, July 20, 2005 and August 8, 1878.
Tuesday also marked the fifth consecutive day of 100+ degree heat in Denver, tying that record as well.
Temperatures are expected to “cool” slightly for Wednesday. The forecast high temperature is 97 degrees.
“Our best chance at rain for the next week arrives in the afternoon with scattered showers and thunderstorms,” says Pinpoint Weather chief meteorologist Dave Fraser.
The extended forecast calls for temperatures in the high-90s or 100s through Monday, and perhaps beyond.
