DENVER -- The hot streak of high temperatures in the 90s will continue through at least Tuesday in Denver.

Sunday's high temperature of 93 degrees at Denver International Airport, the official recording station for the city, was the seventh consecutive day in the 90s.

Temperatures again are expected in the 90s on Monday, which would set a record for consecutive 90-degree days in September.

The high on Monday is expected to reach 92 degrees with sunshine across Denver, Boulder and Fort Collins. The record for Monday is 95 degrees set in 2000.

During the heat wave, Denver has tied or broken high temperature readings on five of the days.

On Sept. 10, Denver reached 93 degrees, tying the record high previously set in 1998, 1994 and 1974.
