Denver sets new record high temperature for September 11

Tuesday, September 11th, 2018 6:03pm MDT

Record High TemperaturesWe said this morning it was a possibility and sure enough, the record high for today’s date was broken.

The National Weather Service reports that Denver’s official high, as measured at DIA, hit 93 degrees this afternoon.  That tops the old record of 92 degrees set in 1951.

Here in Thornton, we fell short of the mark, likely due to afternoon cloud cover reaching us before it did the airport. Our high came in at 91 degrees at 12:44pm.

Believe it or not, we may see another record or two fall before the end of the week.

Tomorrow’s high is forecast at 94 degrees, the same as the record high for the date. Thursday’s record high of 96 is not likely to be broken but we could come within a couple of degrees.  Friday and Saturday’s record highs are both 92 degrees and we may come very, very close to those marks.
