As on Monday, Denver has seen 16 consecutive days with 90 degrees or higher temperatures. There was some hope the streak might be broken today but that quickly vaporized as we reached 95 degrees.
The current streak moves into a tie for fourth (with 2000). The record of 18 days consecutive set in 1901 and 1874 is looking to be sure to be broken before the heat eases. The next couple of days will see us remain in the mid 90’s and by Thursday and Friday we will be in the upper 90’s (possibly 100). The weekend shows no relief with temps well into the 90’s as well. At the current time it looks like we will thouroughly eclipse the 18 day record and there is no end in sight at this time.
