Denver sets a new record high temperature for September 3

Sunday, September 3rd, 2017 5:27pm MDT

Record High TemperaturesWhew! Is this September or July?  As expected the mercury kept on climbing today and did indeed get into record-setting territory.

At 1:53pm the temperature at Denver International Airport where the Mile High City’s official records are kept reached 97 degrees.  This easily bests the previous record high for the date of 95 degrees set in 1995.

Additionally the reading tied the record for hottest September temperature.  Six other times in the past the mercury reached 97 degrees during September occurring on September 1, 1995, September 4, 1960, September 4, 1995, September 5, 1899, September 5, 2013, and September 6, 2013.

Here in Thornton, we were actually warmer than DIA (a rarity).  Temperatures here topped out at 98.5 degrees at 1:20pm.

While above normal temperatures (but not record-setting) are expected for tomorrow, we do expect to see a significant cool down Tuesday then see things bounce back to readings a bit above normal for the balance of the week. See the extended forecast here.
