Cooling centers open again in Denver on Wednesday with more record heat likely

Local News

DENVER (KDVR) — It was a scorcher Tuesday afternoon with Denver hitting a new record high of 101 degrees for that day.

The old record was 97 degrees from 1952 and 1993.

Stretching back over 139 years of records, this is Denver’s 96th 100-degree-day. That’s less than 1% of the summer.

We are looking at triple digit heat again Wednesday afternoon so the City of Denver is offering cooling stations again at the city’s rec centers.
