12 days and counting – the 90 degree streak continues

Thursday, July 24th, 2008 4:55pm MDT

The 90 degree streak continues.As of today, Thursday, we are at 12 consecutive days with 90 plus degrees.  Unfortunately there doesn’t appear to be an end in sight although some coming days may drop just below the 90 degree mark.

Friday we can expect 91 degrees, Saturday 93, and Sunday 94.  Monday is currently looking to be around 90 so maybe the streak will end then – keep your fingers crossed!

Where do we stand in terms of setting a record for consecutive days at 90 or above?  12 consecutive days of 90+ is actually not all that unusual.  Six times in the past we have met the 12 day streak and seven times we have had more than 12.  Below, courtesy of the National Weather Service, are the statistics for 90 degree consecutive streaks in Denver.
