Another record falls: Denver sets fourth high temperature record for the month

Tuesday, February 21st, 2017 5:22pm MST

Record High TemperaturesFive days after the last one and for the fourth time this month, Denver set a daily high temperature record today.

Per the National Weather Service, the high temperature at Denver International Airport topped out at 73 degrees today.  This tops the previous record high temperature for today’s day of 71 degrees last set in 1995.

Here in Thornton, we were actually a bit warmer with a high of 74 degrees.

This follows on three previous daily record high temperatures this month:

  • February 10: 80 degrees (old 71 degrees in 1951)
  • February 15: 67 degrees (old 66 degrees in 1986)
  • February 16: 75 degrees (old 70 degrees in 1970)

The 80 degree reading on February 10 was also the warmest mercury reading on history in Denver.  The old warmest February reading of 77 degrees was recorded on February 4, 1890 and February 28, 2006.

We look to be done with the record-setting temperatures for the foreseeable future however.  Following another mild day tomorrow, we will turn colder for the balance of the week as a trough digs in pulling colder air in from the north. Check out our extended forecast for details.
