As we discussed earlier in our June weather recap, this summer has thus far been exceedingly warm.  Mother Nature seems intent on keeping that going, at least at the outset of July.

At 4:36pm today the temperature at Denver International Airport reached 101°.  This breaks the high temperature record for July 2 of 100° last set in 2007.

Most notably however is the fact that this was the 8th time that Denver has met or exceeded the 100° mark.  This is the first time since record keeping began in Denver in 1872 that this has happened.  See the image to the right for details.

Here in Thornton we were a bit cooler today “only” reaching 98.3° at 2:40pm.  This was the 11th straight day of 90° temperatures or above for us.

The heat looks to continue at least until Thursday.  After that we are closely watching a change in weather patterns that may not only bring cooler temperatures but also much-needed precipitation.
